Appropriation: The Great Wave Off Kanagawa

The Great Wave Off Kanagawa Originally by Katsushika Hokusai. This was an appropriation for a drawing assignment in my drawing II class.

 

This is done in colored pencil with lots of blending. The only other medium used was graphite for the grey in the sky. 18 x 24 sketch paper.

 

I changed the words and used an online translator so the Japanese grammar might be off. I used Japanese katakana characters to convey "The invitation cat meets the great wave" within the rectangle box, outside the rectangle is my first name.
