I love Japan. That shouldn’t be too surprising to hear if you read my site regularly. In the past I’ve taken the traditional Japanese print style and created cross stitches out of it, like my Japanese Gengar cross stitch. However, I’ve never done a faithful rendition of the style.
 
A while ago I went to the museum in London and saw a print of the Great Wave, and it’s stuck in my head for a while, maybe a year or more. I recently remembered it when I saw missypena’s Great Wave Off Kanto posters.
I remade the two images, combined them, and edited them to fit the original slightly better. This work took maybe 200 hours or more and is by far the largest piece I have completed. However, I think it might be my best to date.
 
Thankfully my work with the great wave came in super handy, as its one of the artworks featured in my Fine Art Cross Stitch book!
