That is great! Juxtaposition of grace of the tea ceremony and the bunch of mad hatters – perfect! Has both a vintage feel and contemporary edge. Really enjoyable.
P.S: Have you been to Anony blog tea party to get this green?

Anthony Woodward said...

Yes I have seen anon's entry this week, very green. I wanted to do a piece that somehow expressed what the tea ceremony can mean, which to me is about acknowledging 'other', cherishing the guest and appreciating every aspect of our lives.
I couldn't resist throwing in an Alice in wonderland reference...it works as a contrast between east and west attitudes towards tea.

I like the fresh feeling in your illustration, yet a feeling of deep tradition, you have more than finely presented here, wonderful.

Now whose doing the sublime to the ridiculous?! :) Heehee, I enjoyed this a lot. We all have our own strange rituals... we're all mad here!

Anthony, funny thing - I was talking about Moth & Tanuki just now and someone else mentioned Tom Robbins! This is only the second time I've heard of him, but he apparently has a Tanuki character as well - will check him out soon...
