Does anyone know any websites that have some Japanese art on them? I'm after some images for my desktop but can't find anything!

Thanks, just what I was after. The Hokusai images were the ones I was after.

Incidentally, what do ukiyoe and shodo mean?

Did a Google image search for sumi-e and got this page (http://images.google.com/images?q=sumi-e&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&btnG=Google+Search).

Shodo is the way of the brush, ukiyoe is woodblock printing.

I may not have translated those literally
