ABSTRACT ART: What do you see in abstract art? There's no incorrect answer. Use your imagination. Make up your own story and believe in it. Your story is the subjective truth you live with. Ultimately, not only in abstract art, but also everything in life is about how you view things. Enjoy life. Enjoy abstract art!
Q is a multi-color abstract eye candy. It is a paper collage on a wood box of 9x9x2 and varnished with epoxy resin on front and sides. Q (kyu) means 9 in the Japanese language, and also they look like the character "Q." Q is also a "Q" of question, as one has to question herself/himself what these look like to her/him.
Each piece is one of a kind, different from others. What you think this is what it is. Some see eggs, while others may see beans, rocks, jelly beans, and even potatoes.
The Japanese writing in the middle is a page of Noh script (learn about Noh).

I guess I am a Rheologist. I just didn't know this fancy terminology to call myself. I've spent quite a bit of time messing with a viscus material which viscosity changes over time. I've watched it slide, flow, drip, and I got good at it. I am a Rheologist.
I am also an artist who makes a maximum use of optical illusion to make a 2-dimensional objects look like 3-D or even make it look like moving. But I didn't realize I was doing just that with my epoxy resin work until a puzzled Rheologist contacted me.
This image below completely "fooled" polymer scientists who are not actually fool at all (read it here). They found my blog entry and thought there were wrinkles on the drop.
If you have used epoxy resin, you know this thing is self-leveling even in a very viscous state. Epoxy resin is extremely faithful to the gravitational force and wants to be flat very, very much. What appear to be wrinkles are optical illusions of stripes with different colors. There are NO wrinkles in physical sense.
Frankly, looking at those images, I myself find it very hard to believe that these are actually flat even though I KNOW they are flat.
In some disciplines of science and medicine, specialists can understand a lot of things by visual inspections alone. And this is a good example of such a competence in Science. The Rheologists knew the formation of wrinkles was impossible, by only looking at the image on a computer screen, and had to ask me how I performed the impossible.
Here is the image that looks so 3-D that it fooled Rheologists at Aspen Research Corporation.

It actually took two years to complete this piece. In 2008 I had this thing with only the moon-like thing in the middle with sparkling blue back ground. I kept adding the cloud-like thing but I didn't like the way it looked, so I put it aside. From time to time I tried to finish it but I didn't finish it because I liked the way the moon looked like and didn't want to screw up the piece.
Then in 2010 I looked at it again and finished the cloud-like thing and put the final epoxy coating on it. Then I came up with the title, "Happy Hour."
Today it was adopted to a local dude. Happy Ending.

I call this "Micro Resin" because this is a magnified image of a tiny resin drip. I tried to print it but faced some color correction difficulties. Maybe someday when I have a plenty of time I will work on correcting colors on prints. So many ideas, so little time!

I always wanted to make a table top with line painting, and this is what happened when I actually did it. I think it is so cool that those items look like they are sitting on waves when the surface is flat.
Acrylic painting on table top, and vanished with epoxy resin.

They may look all the same, but they come in different colors. Dark brown on top, the middle is the obvious red, and the bottom, the black.
Colors are more obvious before lines are painted. Somehow the presence of lines overwhelms the color itself and become harder to see the color differences.
I can use any color on the background, and this makes some buyers drive crazy, trying to decide which ones they want to get.

Since no one complained about this business card which was designed by me in 2006, I continue to use this again. I changed the font to a little bit different one but basically the same card as before.
This time I am printing them at PsPrint, which is just across the street from my studio. I am going back and forth back and forth to get the proof. So far they have been very patient with me. I consider myself a very difficult customer as far as print job in concerned. This is the first time I print something with PsPrint, but I have been hearing good things about them from other artists, so even if I my business card are not printed yet, I already recommend this service for affordable marketing printing.
It is convenient to be able to drop by to see the proof prints or picking up the printed products, but you can do all the things online too.
