Here is my drawing
for this week’s
One Hour Drawing Challenge.

The subjects were,

“Death God”/”skull”.

The organizer of the challenge chose
those subjects because of Halloween season.

So, I tried to draw something
more Japanese/Japanesque image
rather than persuing Western.

This is an image of Rakugo-ka (らくごか、落語家)
performing the story of Death God (しにがみ、死神).

“Rakugo-ka” is the traditional stand-up
comedian/story teller in Japan
(well, they do their performance
“sitting” on the stage.
So, “stand-up” is not correct, I guess.
On the other hand, “Rakugo” is
the naun of their performance.
Therefor, a Rakugo-ka does Rakugo).

This Rakugo, the story of Death God,
the title is exactly, “Death God”
is the one written around 200 years ago.

It is innterestingly, based on one of
German stories collected by brothers of Grim,
“Godfather Death”(Der Gevatter Tod)
and an Italian opera by Federico Ricci,
“The Cobbler and the Fairy (Crispino e la comare)”.
