This is 40x 60 cm, made by combining two Brain Cell horizontal format pages.

Ryosuke connected Brain Cell 908 and Brain Cell 907, then painted the black area,

leaving a profile of?.... with many stampings and artistamps...

(that is me! I have my hair "bobbed" and with bangs, how did he know?)

It is actually  lovely profile portrait of Rysuke's wife, Noriko :-)

Brain Cell 907 is in the lower area and at the lower curve is her name: Noriko!:

I had seen one of Ryosuke's special creations with Brain Cells that he did for Susanna Lakner in 2004

...see her blog:

Susannia going to the Museum

Noticing the details,

Ryosuke placed my stamp "Greek Mail Art Time" in "my brain":

and connected with my stamp was this one:

Plus a stamp from John Held Jr., "who wonders what it is all about"

and I think the "tree" is by Theo Nelson? 

Not knowing the technique that Ryosuke used to create these stampings in blues

and glowing colors that come through the black background, but the effect is fabulous:

Thank you immensely, Ryosuke! I am deeply honored.

Many of the stampings here "glow" through Ryosuke's black areas:

I am told that the "model" for this profile portrait might be Ryosuke's wife.

That is lovely...(but I see my bangs and short hair here too...amazing!  :-)

This arrived in a large architect's drawing tube:

and with special markings by the Export Customs in Japan perhaps:
