Inspiration and Influences: Dice Tsutsumi

I had a really hard time choosing an image for this post. It was hard to narrow it down, because Dice Tsutsumi's work is just so good! The painting above is the one that piqued my curiosity about his work in the first place, so after falling down an internet Dice Tsutsumi rabbit hole for an hour...or so...I finally decided that that's where I'll start off here too.

For more, follow my path down the rabbit hole: (beware: you will be amazed! I make no apologies for time lost and tasks left undone)

Dice Tsutsumi write up on Lines and Colors.

His website, where you can scroll through his oil paintings, illustrations and sketchbooks.

The Sketch Travel project.

A book you are going to want badly- Out of Picture. We are fortunate enough to have a copy, and it is brilliant! (Dice's story being one of my favourites)

  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Evangeline. I will go check out Dice Tsusumi's website. That painting is awesome! It looks like it pops out of the canvas.
