This is a poster that I completed for a fundraising initiative following the tragic tsunami of March 11. 2011, which devastated the coastal regions of the Tōhoku prefecture. ‘Posters for Japan’ was an initiative out of Norway, where over a hundred artists from the world over created a poster that was to be offered for sale. The proceeds of the sale were a small contribution to assist the people affected by the earthquake and resulting tsunami. The exhibition also toured Japan.
The painting depicts a Zosterops japonicus, or Japanese White-Eye (mejiro – メジロ, 目白).
