Beautiful 1903 Wave Illustrations by Mori Yuzan

There’s a nifty site I recently added to my Twitter feed that feeds creativity. It’s @mymodernmet. They have a store attached to their website, with links to cool things like tattoo socks with gorgeous birds and all sorts of other clever, often beautiful, creations. A day or two ago I saw a link to a free collection of Japanese wave and ripple illustrations by artist Mori Yuzan, done in 1903. For more information on the artist and the designs, check out The Public Domain Review’s page on them here. I downloaded them and printed on my regular (cheap) printer paper, then cut one in half to glue into my Moleskine daily calendar and saved the rest for later. I don’t know why I stuck an old piece of gold embroidery thread through stick-on hole reinforcers, but there you go. The quote, “You didn’t come this far to go somewhere else,” was clipped from a magazine somewhere, sometime. It’s a reminder to me to quit posting in this blog and get back to my novel manuscript. It’s working well, right?
