Day six in Kyoto
This series documents my 15-day trip to Japan in April 2019. I wrote and sketched everyday and when I got home I wanted a way to process my experiences so this is the result - a print for every day I was there. I feature in all these prints - I am the large eared fox like character with the stripy jumper!
On this day I stumbled across a pug cafe, visited the Golden Pavillion and the Zen garden Ryoan-ji ( see me raking the gravel ) .I also enjoyed the slightly peculiar sweets called ‘Nama Yatsuhashi’ ( bottom right hand corner ) sweet bean paste wrapped in raw rice flour flavoured with cinnamon , green tea or sesame.
I print everything from my studio using a small wooden hand press and my etching press. The finished result is unique and original with no two prints being alike.
