Ok-I was doing a Flickr search for "cute birds" and somehow(after following the six degrees) I ended up with Zakka.
Everyone stop what you're doing and give a moment of thanks to TBL, (my Knight In Shining Armor).
Anyway, it's nice to get a glimpse at the way ideas from the East and West blend together and keep creativity rolling forward. This is an example of the work by a well known Japanese Zakka artist, Shinzi Katoch.
And this is another charming example from Moonstiches
I get the feeling that a definitive Zakka definition is not that easy to pin down and that it somehow partially lives in that elusive world without words.
