Previous (3rd) session can be seen here
It had been a long while. Almost a year since Steve came back from the previous session. Hope now, we don’t need to wait so long to give this project it’s last touches!
Went to a cool exhibition about Japonisme. Showing how Japanese art, aesthetics and fashion influenced the Western (mainly European) artists.
Firstly surprised by the entrance price (double than the average museums I visited) and then, by the number of security personnel.
The bummer was completed with a “photos forbidden” sign right in the entrance…
Well, they were selling the catalog at the museum shop, so at the end it’s all about business I guess…
All in all, it was part interesting and part a little bit “forcing” the idea of connecting certain themes and paintings to Ukiyo-e classics and Noh masks.
Now, time to sit in the table and try to slide into the paper what I had seen and above all, what I felt.
Photos bellow are from the permanent exhibition (BTW, way interesting stuff!)

Well, no more excuses or blames. I’m just back to mass produce of flashes again. Sometimes what people call “inspiration” takes hell of time to tap my shoulder, and I have these guilty feelings until it happens.
After attending 2 good conventions, the gear it’s on again.
Seeing good work, meeting with friends and getting what I call a “kick in the ass” is the only way to wake me up.
And that’s the reason I avoid to call it “inspiration” instead.
I look to tattooing as a craft and therefor, drawings are a important part of the process.
If you wait for that inspiration too long…others are kicking their own asses!
Hope you all have a kicking good week!
