I've been working in this blue/green along side the sepia/scrimshaw look. Someone mentioned to me recently that these pieces have a japanese wood block print feel to them. It never entered my mind nor do I think of it, but like the reference. I feel that way with the sepia toned pieces as well. I'm working out a deliberate old fashioned/familiar/worn/comfort food kind of feel....but modern.
I'm working on a selection of new pieces for a shop in San Francisco called Small Stump/Studio Choo for a nautical themed show in July. more info on that in future.
