This recently-finished pencil drawing is to be a reference for a dye sample/swatch I’m gonna be working on next, that is for the newest of my Dyed Threads series, “Spider Lily Red” project. The line-oriented approach you see here is of me teaching myself a new trick, that I think would best capture the extreme curliness of the spider lily petals.
The said petals start out fairly straight-edged. As the blooming progresses however, they go into this full-on abstract free-form red wavy anarchy that feels more like a perfectly-choreographed theater. Petals themselves are quite tiny but hold within so much passion, that’s how I sense them anyways.
The project is gradually gaining momentum so swing by again when you get a chance.
Thank you for your visit.
Hello, howdy, how’s this Life thing going at your end?
Me, much of my evenings are spent visiting where fireflies hang, floating in the night, suspended in time.
They hack my sense of time there. Jail breaking with no strings attached. Generous sweethearts, them biofluorescents.
Early summer days get tender and sensual as the sun goes down.
The sound of breaking waves is the ever-lasting heart beat, with its imprint inescapable to both the sea shells and myself.
I will report the progress of the said project along with my usual blah blah’s on here or on social sites such as EyeEm, Flickr and Tumblr.
So swing by, when you get a chance. Thank you, and have a great July and beyond.
Depicting the mental process behind each piece. Originally posted on my Cargo Collective account (which is undergoing remodeling since tonight) sometime around June 2011.
Long-ish post. To scroll up, I highly recommend using the “Back to Top” function found at the lower right corner, as this site’s image loading set-up may make it harder to return towards the top.

上向きスクロールはこのサイトの画像ローディング設定上苛立たしい状況になることが多いようなので、右下コーナーにある「Back to Top」使用をお勧めしております。

Hope you get to see the cherries fall – have you?
There’s this one day all the trees decide to let go of the petals, it’s not the rain, wind, or storm… but when this one day comes, often a very sunny day, they release their petals and fill the gray and busy Tokyo with swirling mass of pink confetti.
