This past weekend was the third and final of my city’s big festivals! The first is the Daruma festival in early January and the second is the Tanabata Festival in July. I put together this little video about it for my panel at Otakon in August, and I’m happy to be putting it on YouTube for you guys to see!
Japanese festivals are a ton of fun, and Tanabata is one of my favorites. The decorations are beautiful, the food is delicious, the story is romantic…what more could you want? As a little bonus, here’s a watercolor that I did of Orihime, the princess in the stars, on the banks of the Milky Way. I hope you like it! 🙂
Man, I miss the street food. =)
