Copies of my artist book/comic Blotting Paper: The Recollected Graphical Impressions Of Doctor Comics are available exclusively from the launch venue Hondarake till 31 May 2012: Level 1, 465 Kent Street Sydney phone: 02 9261 5225 online shop: http://fullofbooks.com.au
The limited edition numbered and signed book comes with an original print on the front cover (see photo above), a numbered bookmark and printed bag (see photo of package below).
The store also stocks a selection of printed postcards that I produced in the sosaku hanga method, each one an original hand-made print, signed and stamped by the artist. Both the art book/comic and the cards involve printmaking as an image-making technique. I employed the Japanese technique of woodblock printmaking in my first animation film around 20 years ago and I have continued to use Japanese influenced printmaking techniques since. During this time I have largely been involved in the scholarly and research aspects of visual communication, writing and teaching more than making. This artist’s book and exhibition marks a more focused return to ‘making’ images.
