Gou and her Children by sweet-suzume Gou and her Children by sweet-suzume
Mother's Day card 2017

Who watches all those taiga dramas with me?  My mom!  One of her all-time favorites is "Aoi Tokugawa Sandai."
(a great fan's description of the show is available here)  Iwashita Shima played Gou, one of the major characters, wife of second shogun Hidetada, and was mother to all these children...!  I didn't draw everyone with their Aoi Tokugawa visual portrayal/interpretation in mind, but that's definitely the version of them that will stick characterization-/story-wise in my head for a long time.  The family aspect of the show and thoroughness of including so many members of those three generations of the Tokugawa family was both entertaining and informative.  Due to her connections to the Oda, Toyotomi, and then Tokugawa, Gou was definitely close to the center of much of the major military and political action of her times...!

Whee, nice card idea~ :D it's a lot of characters to put in, but I'll bet your mom dug it.

Thank you!  More characters didn't really lead to significantly more work for me since I didn't do anything too complicated with them.  But, yeah, my mom really liked it (and was surprised), so it was quite a success.
