Loose and casual graphic-blogging with random thoughts and links to interesting things.
I’m working on some smaller, lined Moleskine pocket notebooks. I had this scrap paper left over for the covers. Inside the front cover, I’ve pasted a couple layers of this fine Japanese paper I picked up for a steal from Global Village and printed it with a linocut I carved: a two-tone image of Soja no Gorô Tokimune, a famous kabuki character. I’m not pleased with the conflation of the Chinese exterior and the Japanese interior, but I’m just working with what I have immediately on hand.
Los Troqueros - Morena De Ojitos Cafes (Wub Machine Techno Remix)
My friend Carlos introduced Wub Machine to me. I’ve been feeding it cultural/ethnic music and it comes back with amazing results. The Drum & Bass remix of “Sun Pu Xiao,” Traditional Music of Amoy, is just insane! One could create a whole new music library of the songs they love, mix it up for workouts or walking around (or, if you’re a lazy DJ, clubbing).
