Recent sketches. I’m just trying to have fun these days!  

History in the making! 

The Great Woodblock Saga continues! Two years after we started, we now have 11 skilled carvers, printers and assistants in our employment. These craftspeople are working, improving and preserving this craft because of you!

And the next step: David Bull is opening his store in the heart of Tokyo. But it’s not just be a store - it’s a Woodblock Experience, where anybody can try their hand at printmaking, and bring home a unique souvenir in the process! 

Dave already has $35,000 saved up to renovate the building, but construction ALWAYS goes over. To raise a little extra padding capitol, Dave’s Kickstarter campaign is offering three amazing prints. You can look through them in this post.

I’m definitely getting “The Scent of Chrysanthemums” - which one will you get? Here’s the Kickstarter link:

nimtzart said: Hey Jed, what kind of brush did you use to make your Ukiyo-e prints?

Hi! I use a standard Chinese calligraphy brush. There are many different types of brush, depending on how the bristles are bound. I’ve learned that this shape is really nice for drawing:

Link totally needs that bug-net arrow in the next Zelda game! How about it @Nintendo?  :D
In a few years I want to try doing some really big gallery pieces. Maybe go to grad school in Tokyo. Not sure.
I’m trying to explore some new concepts, to see what subject matter and themes are possible.
And this was just a lot of fun.
