Kokeshi Doll – Winter

Hi Everyone!

I love to draw vector images and if you know me, you know I love Anime and anything to do with Japan. So! I have decided to start posting a series of Kokeshi Dolls throughout the year. If they get enough love, I may just turn them into stickers or something to sell.

If you don’t know what Kokeshi Dolls are, here is a nice description from Wikipedia:

“Kokeshi (こけし kokeshi?), are Japanese dolls, originally from northern Japan. They are handmade from wood, have a simple trunk and an enlarged head with a few thin, painted lines to define the face. The body has a floral design painted in red, black, and sometimes yellow, and covered with a layer of wax. One characteristic of kokeshi dolls is their lack of arms or legs. The bottom is marked with the signature of the artist.”
