19 December 2010


i just picked up the new Jan.2011 issue of ku:nel for only $5 at one of the Japanese bookstores in town. it also came with a cute little 2011 calendar! here's a look inside...









today is nice and chilly and it has been raining all day. it's very calming. i live on a slight mountain, so the clouds have decided to come down and cover our neighborhood. the farthest thing i can see when i look outside my window, is just the homes in front of mine. everything in the distance has been lost in beautiful white mist.

and my sister found Tanko sleeping on the 5th shelf of our linen closet. so cute.

I really love reading some japanese magazines eventhough I got some difficulties to translate the texts. But I really enjoy the pictures (when I give up translating)

Anyway, Tanko looks adorably cute! I miss having cats, really :|

I want to ask about your Dot t-shirt: Transparency paper is the same of Transfer paper?

anyway, it really looks amazing, congratulations!

yes, it was transfer paper :-)
i just painted a simple dot design on it with a rapid-ink, and when i printed the exposure on the shirt i did it multiple times to get that layered many dot effect :-)
