thank you

if you're into woodblock print at all, check out an artist names Masami Teraoka. He's a modern guy, imitates old techniques to produce commentary work...and that's just his cultural stuff!!

Cool stuff.


My favorite Japanese artist of this sort is landscape artist Ando Hiroshige. I'm not alone in liking him though, Van Gogh, Whistler and a bunchof other people were influenced by him. Van Gogh used to study his compositions. He's nothing short of brilliant.

the japanese make the most mind blowing textiles in the world.

this one dying process called ikat, they dye each individual thread and wrap tiny

threads around sections to resist the dye and it all makes a pattern, its so amazing

they also make their own gold leaf thread that is such an incredible process.

i want to move to japan and sit in the woods, and make natural dyes, and weave.
