Rock And Roll


  •  What they probably did here was rock and roll. Print the same scene over and over to keep the pixels - the grain - alive. 

    - Jingo Asakuma



    Some movies you can watch over and over. One of those happens to be Rising Sun for me. It stars Sean Connery and Wesley Snipes. During my weekend, I stayed up a bit late again watching this movie. I also got all of the DMC 310 finished for pages three and four. Up next is the ubiquitous 817. After that, the fill in of different shades of red and then onto pages five and six. This piece is really flying along and I cannot wait to have it finished. I have been thinking about finishing techniques and one that is currently popular is a wall hanging with tassels and bamboo. I will wait until it's completely finished before I make the decision though. 


    At any rate, here is my progress since my last post:
