1000: Cherry dragon (Ryusi)

A very bright and cheerful green dragon appears to be riding between the "waves" of cherry blossom. Though vivid in colour, the dragon has all the classic characteristics: the clenched ball, and a fierce countenance.


Born in 1968 in Oita as Ogawa Ryuji, the artist became a pupil of Ozuma Kaname, and in addition to a successful exhibiting career, has produced illustrations for CD and book jackets. His brush name Ryusi, literally "Dragon-determination", is a variant of his real name, written with the same 'dragon' character — and he has become something of a dragon specialist. Note that the pronunciation is more usually represented in Hepburn romanisation as "Ryushi".
