Day 23 Library

Tonight I attempted at paper cutting.  I was blocked again, and i took a nap as an escape from TAD but when I woke up, I got an idea to do paper cutting.  I just began drawing a scene at a library on a piece of black paper.  Those who are close to me know that big part of my life so far was spent in libraries, so it came easy for me to draw this scene.  I am not quite finished with this, but it’s past midnight and i’m ready for bed!


About kabablanket

I work at an academic library by day. It is a pretty sweet arrangement for me, because I go home at 4:30pm everyday and I get to do whatever I want after that. These days I mostly go home and work on my collages or drawings. I'm in process of becoming more disciplined about art., challenging myself to show up to create something everyday. I am a self-taught artist (it's so difficult for me to call myself an artist, but I'm trying). I look down when I'm walking (something I've always done) because I'm always on the look out for something interesting to pick up. Another one of my favorite past time is to go to library book sales and used book stores. I love magazines too. I want to do 1% better every day.

    Sugoi.!! Hiroo and I were just looking at this and were so amazed. He said you are beyond “Shirotto” and have become a real artist!! Your work has a lot of warmth and humor and we can feel what the people in your pictures feel!! Keep up the good work!

    • Thanks :) I had fun doing it! I’ve done paper cutting long time ago, but it was so much fun to do it! I think you got me the paper cutting knife and cutting mat and instruction book ages ago, like in 1999 or something, and i may not have used it fully back then, but I’m definitely getting a good use out of it now! Thanks for always being my biggest supporter! It’s good to know Hiroo and You enjoy my work :)
