I made hundreds of swishing brush strokes on the pages of two books-- Celestial Mechanics (a physics book) and The Duino Elegies by Rilke--then cut them out, rearranged them, added pictures of the moon and other such wonderments, and glued them into formation. The next image is one of those collages.
In the background you can see my official notification of receiving my Second Dan Black Belt from one of the many branches of the Japan Karate Association. I can't actually read it. I just like the way the little brush strokes look.
