  1. You are quite talented, Lisa. Thanks for sharing this blog. I am very intrigued, and I especially like your thoughts on music and light in respect to Mozart.

    I'm curious about the rabbits in the New Year's picture. What was your reason for using rabbits?

  2. David - Thank you for your comments and for checking out my blog!
    It's a Japanese tradition to send new years cards to friends and family featuring the zodiac animal of the new year.. and 2011 is the year of the rabbit. Also referring to a Japanese myth about rabbits on the moon pounding mochi, a Japanese rice-snack. Yay!

  3. Ooo, it's the year of the rabbit next year. I completely forgot. That means we're getting old Lisa!!

    You should open an online shop for cards; these are infinitely better than any card I've seen in shops anywhere!

    Oh, and re the picture of B, I think I will need to postpone it for now, hehe. But I will commission something soon, I just need some inspiration...something that is definitely lacking these days.

    Keep posting Lisa, your work reminds me of how weird and wonderful you are :)

    I miss youuuu.

    2011 de 24 ka.. jikan meccha hayakunai? We haven't seen each other since we were 20 dayo, tabun.

    About the card idea- thanks! I'm thinking of getting some sort of screen-printing device set up so I can bust out more cards & art to sell.

    Well, I still owe you the icon of your face. What if I do something inspired by you.. not such a literal copy of a picture of you?

    I miss you too! Come to Chicago, majide!
