After work is finished I like to go over it with a goat hair brush and give it a very final polish.
This weekend I finished the prototype for special Women of Japan artist's portfolio for Wiscon 2009. This is the cover.
All the images are signed archival digital prints. The portfolio consists of four images with model's texts on 8.5 by 11 paper and one full 8.5 by 11 print. All the texts are bilingual English and Japanese. This image of the 2 women in the Women of Japan gallery is the large print in the portfolio.
It's been a while since I worked with the aesthetics of images and text. It gives me a very particular satisfaction that's different from anything else I do. Folks at Wiscon have been very appreciative of my Women of Japan project and I wanted to do something special for them.
