Introducing the second in the 2009 Autumn series of prints: A Welcome Messenger.
Honestly, I have no idea why this one took so long to make. There've been tons of requests for it, and it holds a special place in my heart. Messenger, along with Hitching a Ride on the Breathe of Fortune marked an exciting change of direction in my work. In a way, nearly all the work I've done since coming to Japan has evolved out of these two pieces.
The plan to introduce a new print each week in November is still in effect, and I'm a little shocked that I've actually stuck to the schedule. As long as you look at calendar weeks, and not periods of seven days anyway.
Again, If you're thinking of ordering more than one, you should probably wait 'til they're all out. After all, there's no reason to pay shipping twice. All Gicleés are printed on A4-size Deep PV fine art paper.
