Frog Stripes - Continued Inspiration from Yayoi Kusama and the Influence of Printmakers


Stencils, stamps, and scotch tape... These are a few of my favorite things! 

Using some of the approaches given to painters by the printmaking world (more on this later – giving thanks to Edo Japan for opening up the ports to foreign commerce in the 1800s), I created the above video to show the process of playing with patterns.

My friend Rick Lescault's band, Skyjelly, created the music - Boy48 - and allowed me to use it. 

I also received permission to share work from two stunningly talented students, Courtney and Ananya. They produced their solutions to this prompt: How can you make a patterned frog and its environment co-dominant?
