Great Wave Original Sketch

This s the one that started it all. Hosukai’s ‘Great Wave off Kanagawa’ is an iconic image that has been endlessly copied, replicated and adapted and the response I got when I posted the sketch on FB was something I hadn’t expected.

Great Wave Vector

I originally translated the sketch to a vector graphic (above) as part of working out a process of producing colourable lineart, but the acquisition of a scanner has simplified the process of digitisation somewhat.

This A4 development of the original sketch has additional details and is slightly different as it was translated by hand and not traced.
