I recently came across a print of scarlet maple trees by a wood block artist, Hiroshige. He's not as well known by the American public compared to Hokusai. But his compositions are simple beautiful. I thought I'd try to learn and apply some of his concepts.
I wanted to experiment a little with cloud/smoke patterns that you would see in a Japanese wood block painting. Just as I finished it, another application idea came to mind. I'll be using it on another near future piece.
I'm excited to post for the first time a Mock up cover for The Foreigner featuring Kaz. For those unfamiliar with this project, it was featured in the Brooklyn Paper as well as The Princeton Packet. The first issue is available for purchase at my website store, www.piggybackstudios.com.
