Thief- 泥棒

Just some more black and white portraiture work.  I random word generator gave the word "thief," so that was my theme.  I wanted to do something more creative, but I also wanted to stick with a simple portrait, so this was what happened.

African: PS Painting Study- ネグロイド: PSで描く練習

So here is a quick semi-realism painting study- or it was supposed to be a quick study anyway. I started watching TV and got all distracted. Thus, it ended up taking about 4 hours. I'm not 100% happy with it, but if I take it any further, I think I'll have worked it too much.


Christmas Cards- クリスマスカード

I made my Christmas cards this year, too!  All of them were screen printed.


Christmas Gifts- クリスマスのプレゼント

This year, I decided to make all my Christmas gifts.  I used a combination of laser cutter, type setting, woodblock print, and screen printing to make these.


First off, these notebooks.  I made these with a woodblock print.  For those unfamiliar with the process, look here.

The boxes were first created with a laser cutter, and screen printed with the design.



Next is the stamp set.  This I created by taking a linoleum woodcut material to the laser cutter and cutting the designs.  I then carved away the excess material.  This box, too, was created with the laser cutter and the design was screen printed on it.


Finally, the calendar.  This I made by laser cutting the calendar stand, and fixing two binder rings to the top.  The text was printing with moveable type.  The months were adhered to some chips, while the days of the month were splattered with paint.


The inside of the calendar stores the other month pieces.


A fellow designer and friend of mine, Kyril Negoda, took a few pictures of the moveable type process of this.
