 I love Japanese woodblock prints, and have always wished I could afford to own one of Kuniyoshi's dramatic triptychs of whales and boats. Finally I decided to try my hand at this classic theme. In the spirit of Japanese restraint, I limited myself to strict black-and-white, relying on sweeping lines, shapes and patterns to convey the struggle between man and Nature. (In this print, Nature gets the upper hand.) To see how this print was made, visit The Birth of a Print.
