Japanese influence

In searching for some artwork done in Japan , I came across a series I did a while ago while living in Tokyo called "Tokyo Diaries". and some later drawings from last year.

As promised, I will post a few more drawings that were stimulated by a response from Mim a few weeks back. This cover for "facing "was a recycled linocut from another project mounted on Kraft paper like the rest of the little bookbook.…

Today I received a great little package of art mail from Jenny Davis and a beautiful little collage.
