I wanted to write about a project I started recently- something I have been thinking about and doing here and there for a while. I am deeply inspired by the work of Katsuji Wakisaka, a textile designer with Sou Sou. His textiles are beautiful and open and joyful- and colorful of course! He has spent years creating a postcard every day, many of which (all of which?) end up being textile patterns. I love the discipline and routine of this project, and the looseness within the confines of the format. So, once I was all settled in my new studio (!!) (a sunny sublet until May) I decided to go for it, and get down to business with the daily postcard project. I went out and got me some giant pieces of delicious Stonehenge paper, set to work with my trusty bone folder and ripped them up into perfect postcard sized paper canvasses- good to go! I’ve been documenting the work over at instagram- check out my feed!– and although I did miss a week there being out of commission with a flu type deal, I am feeling so energized and excited about this work. I really love the opportunity to explore some random subject everyday- and to draw and paint a bit too!!
