Paper Clip Sculpture

There is a wonderful and quaint collectible store called Mish Mash in the heart of Chinatown Honolulu, where I found vintage photos taken in Israel by an artist probably during the 70's and 80's. In wanting to creatively display them, I hot glued a bunch of paper clips into an empty Altoid container to create this sculptural image holder. Check out the other close ups below and feel free to leave a comment about what you think.

The "No. 4"

I've emerged from my cave to begin posting some of my latest art designs and work. Recently, I've been motivated to do some woodblock carving and printing. Inspired and facinated by the work of the Japanese Ukiyo-e greats such as Hokusai, Hiroshige, Kunishige, Yoshitoshi, etc... I've sat down, got my carving tools out, drew a design, and began cutting. After doing a few prints on inkjet paper, I wasn't happy with the result. So with a roll of rice paper, I cut them to size and the results were better than expected. I could go on and on but the results are the above entitled the "No. 4"
