Humanising the quake: an internet gem

20Mar11

Back in October 2010 I wrote a post on Internet gems. One of the “gems” was DOSANKODEBBIE’S ETEGAMI NOTEBOOK, written by Deborah Davidson, an Etegami artist and Japanese to English translator.

Since the earthquaki and tsunami of 11 March, Deborah has written a series of blog posts on “humanizing the quake”. They celebrate Japan’s people and customs, and are accompanied by Deborah’s beautiful etegami: simple drawings accompanied by a few apt words. I find them both lovely and moving.
