Mainichi Hanafuda: pine

I made a huge break with convention on this suit, which represents the month of January. On the right, my first attempt, a pine card in the modern 'stumpy' style. It looks... okay... but nothing like the Japanese pine that I love to see and draw. So I went oldschool on it and came up with the design to your left, featuring snow-covered branches inspired by a Hokusai woodblock print.

Much better, don't you think?
