1000: Dream (Fujishiro)

Dream? Of a circus, it seems. The usual Fujishiro fantasy elements, including a particularly jolly French horn.

Detail

Born in 1924, Fujishiro has had a long and productive career as an illustrator - producing many children's books, and creating his own brand of fantasy along the way. From an early involvement with shadow puppetry, he developed his own unique style: he calls these kage-e (literally "shadow pictures"), but his is a backlit world not of black and white (or grey), but of wonderful translucent colours, apparently made mostly from tissue paper.

He is still active at the age of 80, and his work has appeared all over the world, most recently (February 2005) in New York and Washington.

* This is a glow-in-the-dark puzzle.
