i painted a series of 8 on paper i picked up at a shop in insadong, in seoul. then i decided i wanted to create a printed pattern layer for the background. one of my friends collects japanese woodblock prints, and the thing i always find most fascinating about them is the layers of patterns that meander around the narratives. i've copied many of the patterns that i've found in his prints, so i used a couple of those blocks to create the background for the horse.
up next, is getting this image painted on the wall!
