Newsletter - April 2017

Hello!

The past couple of weeks have been eventful, I took my second trip to Taiwan, and shortly after that I flew to Canada for a visit with family. So, for the next couple of Mondays I'll be sending out the next postcards on Instagram from Canada. 

INTERESTING THINGS

In order to be open to creativity, one must have the capacity for constructive use of solitude. One must overcome the fear of being alone.
— Rollo May

I've been told by various people that the process of making art is personal and each individual must discover their own process, so it came as a surprise to read about Paul Klee, who often provided his students students with a step-by-step approach to artistic expression.

There are a lot of movie remakes in recent years, one that I am looking forward to it IT — it remains to be seen if Bill Skarsgard (at an imposing 1.91m tall) can fill the shoes of Pennywise left behind by Tim Curry.

I enjoy seeing a beautiful sunset, and can be impressed by mountains (for the record Mt Fuji is more impressive from a couple of hundred kilometers away rather than close up), in general though landscape photography bores me — there are exceptions and this series by Valda Bailey is one.

READING LIST

I picked this book up while in Taipei, and had intended to bring it with me to Canada for something to look at on the plane ride from Tokyo — however I forgot to pack it. 


The response to my postcard sets (or 4x6 images) has been overwhelmingly great, thank you to everyone who has made a purchase. Since I am in Canada at the moment I will fulfil any orders that come in as soon as I get back to Tokyo on April 20 and send them over shortly after that. Sorry for the delay.

That's it for this month, I am keeping this one a bit shorter — so thanks for taking the time to read.
