Custom Japanese Calligraphy

I’d been very busy with Christmas orders but I think it’s finally passed the peak, and I can’t wait to start painting again! Also I have some ideas for new items, and I want to work on them as well 😉
I cooked Tonkatsu tonight, both my husband and I loooove tonkatsu 🙂 Tonkatsu is a pork cutlet, and I put Japanese tonkatsu sauce over it which I bought at Japan Centre in London. (My last post→Went to Japan Centre)
By the way, one of the most popular items in my shop is personalised original calligraphy.
I use quality Japanese sumi ink and calligraphy brushes to create a piece just for you 🙂
This is the latest piece I did for this lovely lady who lives in England.
The big symbol in the centre means ‘LOVE’ and it’s pronounced ‘ai’. It says ‘Dear XXX’ on the right side and ‘From XXX’ on the left side.
She ordered two personalised pieces and this is the second piece:
The four symbols in the centre can be pronounced ‘Sho-Mon-Rai-Fuku’ and it can be translated as ‘Smile invites good fortune’.
sho 笑 – smile
mon 門 – gate/entire family
rai 来 – come
fuku 福 – good fortune/happiness
I handbrushed the name she requested on the right side to make it personalised 🙂
If you’d like a personalised calligraphy piece for yourself you can order it here↓↓↓.
1) Japanese Calligraphy Commission A4 size
2) Japanese Calligraphy Commission A3 size
It will handbrush anything you’d like on quality white card. Then I will carefully wrap your piece in a plastic sleeve and send it in a hardback envelope by Royal Mail First Class. (Royal Mail Airmail for outside the UK.)
