My Little Hanko

In Japan, people do not sign their names, they use stamps, or seals called a Hanko.  Artists also use these special seals to sign their artwork.  I love to impress my Hanko onto my artwork - it is that special little finishing touch that is all mine.

My Hanko says, "Lorraine Bell Serendipity Studios." 

Hankos are always printed using red ink - the ink comes in a little tin and is like a thick paste.  Too cool!  There are so many different types and styles of Hanko but the gentleman I purchased it from assured me that this was an "artist's stamp."  I love my little Hanko!

If you are looking for a Hanko of your very own, I found mine at Azami Press HERE.
