Drawing and binding

tug and wobble_Fuko_Ito

I needed some value for the fumbly figures and the blanky backpack. I went into the print with color pencil. In the past, I had no luck using washi as a drawing surface but drawing on top of mokuhanga (areas that are printed) worked very well.



At MI-LAB, Soyama-san taught us the traditional way to make an accordion book. However, for my project, I folded my print and got interleaving to attach it to the covers. The format of the book made my image more theatrical compared to the ones which I kept as flat, single-sheets.

fumblys finally assembled!
