- I did this piece for Art.Love.Japan. in New York to show support for the natural tragedy that struck Japan in 2011. The theme was 'Love, Hope, and Happiness'. I drew the Japanese characters and scanned them into the computer. I made the middle one (hope) red to help it stand out and reference the Japanese flag. I printed it on light green kitakata paper, which is a Japanese printmaking paper. My piece was displayed for public viewing in the New York show.
