Stay Put

Stay Put

Where are you right now? What is your creative place about? The artist and printmaker who called himself Katsushika Hokusai (葛飾 北斎) was a champion of the art of simply being where you are. Discussing Hokusai's representations of Mount Fuji, this essay suggests one way of revivifying your creative making is to stay put and experiment with really being there.
