Day thirteen in Tokyo
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 got up early and got the bullet train from Kyoto back to Kyoto and spent the day at the Japan Folk Craft Museum - it’s such a wonderful place , full of exquisite artefacts. I also had the best handmade rolls from the amazing IIkebukuro Tobu food hall with a friend who told me all Japanese macaque or snow monkey.
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.
