Scroll with Ukiyoe Style Lithograph

This scrolls artwork was purchased beforehand by the customer. If you also have artwork that you would like framed in an alternative style, I would love to give a quote. Contact to me at sales@customjapanesecalligraphy.com or go to my site at www.shop.customjapanesecalligraphy.com I really like how the artist melded a modern day theme with a painting in an ukiyoe style. It kind of just grabbed me. The customer ordered a Maru Hyougu style scroll, but this style of scroll just did not fit in my mind because of the length of the artwork. So I asked if I could do it in a Rinpo Hyougu style scroll. As this is a first test run frame for a series of works the customer said yes...
I was  ecstatic with the result of the scroll except for one little bulge that has been taken out during the Urazuri process.
