Geisha literally means art. They have to train from young to master the many different forms of art, for instance making traditional Japanese tea, playing an instrument like a Shamisen, dancing and being an entertainer. I hate how almost everyone pictures a Geisha as a prostitute. Not all Geishas sleep with their customers to make money.
Anne Stokes I've always found oriental style imagery interesting, and here's a new design from me incorporating some of these elements. In my art I often like to use the design to suggest a scenario. Here the geisha girl holds her fan to cover part of her face and perhaps in doing so she also hides part of her intention. The skull motif on the fan lines up with her to suggest that something sinister may be going on.
