Illustrator and designer Fumi Koike lives in Saitama, Japan, but to me her work evokes spring in the Sierra foothills of California. She captures the overlap of seasons: gathering wood, planting starts, snowshoe trips to Donner Summit, tank tops and scarves rotating through our wardrobes, dogs whimpering to play all day, then passing out under the blankets when the sun goes down. Every day is every season. The beauty is intoxicating. Just like Fumi's work.
