an artist of the floating world

I came across the Okamoto Freedom Project site this morning, which I suppose is a somewhat tongue-in-cheek (resist off-colour joke here) marketing campaign.

The Okamoto Freedom Project aims to help Singaporeans do what they do best – each other. We’ve created a range of products specially designed to help you find new ways to fool around.

I suppose it won’t be long till some “concerned member of the public” makes a report — who was it that complained about the Abercrombie ad, again? — so I’d suggest you take a look at this soon. Okamoto seems to be differentiating itself pretty well!

Anyway, where was I? I just wanted to say the illustrations on the site reminded me of shunga, a branch of ukiyo-e.

You can get a sense of ukiyo-e here.

Final Note. This has got to be my favourite:

NEWLY INVENTED OKAMOTO’S CONDOMS WITH HOLES
These are specially made for the wives who want to get pregnant but their husband is not ready to be a father. It’s able to fulfill the ladies’ dream of becoming a mummy.

What a nightmare!
