Recommended by Nikki (Fine Print Photographer & Content Publisher):
"Asahi’s work perfectly balances technical skill with playfulness. This particular etching is full of graceful arcs and twirls that spin the viewer in towards the town at the center. Asahi uses her signature color palette to create a softness that’s pleasing to look at with tiny pops of color that also serve to direct the viewer’s eye. Each character depicted is given importance and movement - even the buildings seem to be enjoying themselves, tucked between the jumping fish and waves of the water."
