Peppermint, ink on Japanese paper; image size 10 x 10 in., paper size 18 x 18 in.
I guess I was feeling a little silly when I designed this image (and it was way before Christmas). I was wondering if I could make something work using these candy colors; I'm still wondering. The print has some technical issues––green bleeding into pink, the ink viscosity a little tacky, some of the lines not properly inked––but I accept those imperfections as part of the process, even as adding character. But is the color just too unserious?
