Guitar Kami

For IF: a wise guitar player.


In the Japanese Shinto tradition, kami are traditionally forest spirits, imbued with mononoke, or world spirit. This is a charcoal drawing of Carlos Melendez, a fine guitar player whose skill makes it seem as though he has tapped into mononoke when he is making music.

I love your work! I find it so inspiring, especially since I love black and white, graphite and charcoal! Once again, you are an inspiration!
