Tomorrow / The Next Sun

China míng rì
Japan ashita / meibi
Tomorrow / The Next Sun

明日 is a common way to say "tomorrow" in Chinese and Japanese Kanji.

This temporal noun literally means "next sun[rise]." In addition to "tomorrow," it can also mean "near future."

In Japanese, this can also be the female given name Meibi.

Eat Drink and Be Merry, For Tomorrow We Die

Japan tabe nomi tanoshime ashita wa mina shinu
Eat Drink and Be Merry, For Tomorrow We Die

This means, "eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die," in Japanese.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today

China jīn rì shì jīn rì bì
Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today

This is a Chinese proverb that means, "never put off until tomorrow what you can do today."

Meiya

Japan mei ya
Meiya

This a Japanese word that means "tomorrow night" but is also used as a female given name pronounced Meiya or Akiyo.

Heaven / Sky

China tiān
Japan ten
Heaven / Sky

天 means "heaven" or "sky" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

The context determines if you are talking about heaven or the sky above (often they are the same concept).

When combined with other characters, words like "today" and "tomorrow" are created. While sometimes the character for "sun" is used to mean "day," often "sky" represents "day" in Asian languages.
Example: 今天 (this sky) = "today," 明天 (next sky) = "tomorrow" in modern Chinese and Japanese.

In Chinese culture, regardless of which religion, it's almost always assumed that God (and any other deities) live up above in the sky. The concept of God living in the sky is likely the reason heaven is associated with this character.
The equation goes something like this: God's domain is the sky, thus, the sky is heaven.


Note: As a single character, this is a little ambiguous, so you might want to choose our Kingdom of Heaven selection instead.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
