Hokusai Manga

#Hokusai #Manga

Here's a couple of Hokusai's Manga.

Yes the word manga really did originally refer to plain drawings and prints with only one color!

Hokusai published many of his drawings in what was originally a multiple volume set of books. 

Hopefully your library has books showing some of his drawings but if not I've hunted for images to save you time googling.

Whether he's drawing people or objects you can see how Hokusai considers their interactions and placement within a larger setting and thinks as a designer about leaving blank spaces for  the final layout.

Hokusai was a designer and also draughtsman and yes  a diverse artist!
