seasonal crest collection

A block print series inspired by the changing of the seasons and stylized to resemble mon, Japanese emblems or crests. This series has a range from the traditional, such as the pine in the winter series, to fully imagined by the artist to fit the style, such as the red spider lily in the autumn series.
