2 or 3 years ago, I got the idea to make a series of prints for My good friend, chef Bun Lai of http://miyassushi.com/ in New Haven, CT. I wanted to give him the prints as a gift for all the hospitality he'd shown me over the years and for being like a big brother to me. In the end, the prints were a disaster. My equipment was so broken down that no matter what I did everything kept ending up terribly off-register. I still have a stack of really gross prints. I may have given one or two to Bun as proof of my good-hearted attempt. Anyway, here is one of the original drawings I used in the photo emulsion stage of the process. I think it has its own charm. I like seeing the non-photo blue and whiteout. I think it also serves as an example of how even though sometimes things don't really work out as you intend them to, the process itself can be good and rewarding.
