It's been a long time!


That's an understatement. I have been sporadically drawing since moving to Yokohama, but still haven't set up a painting studio. It's been tough to not have the ability to paint, and I'm trying to find a suitable studio space. In the meantime, my drawings have gone back to some unfinished, underexplored formats. This one revisits some things I tried a few years ago, but this time on a weird new type of paper called Yupo. Yupo is made of plastic; it can handle mediums which other paper can't, and responds differently to similar techniques. Here I used a watercolor wash, with some salt resist for texture. On top of that is a mix of ink, wax pencil, and erasure.


Thank you all for your patience! I'll try to post more regularly from now on...
