Looking for a new wallpaper that’s cute and done by an International Manga Award bronze winner? Here’s a present from SYS, the creator of Sang Sayur (The Edibles) which won the bronze prize in the 2007 International Manga Award. Right now, Sang Sayur is only in the Indonesian language, but you can still see her delicious characters riding the back of the sheep.
I’m so happy to have these! I studied both Hokusai and Utagawa Hiroshige in college, and I fell in love with ukiyo-e, or woodblock prints. Who are Hokusai and Hiroshige? They are ukiyo-e artists who changed both the techniques and styles of ukiyo-e into what we know it today. Hokusai created unique compositions in 36 Views of Mount Fuji (find the repetition of three in The Great Wave off Kanagawa), and Hiroshige developed color gradients in ukiyo-e like Plum Tree at Kameido.
