I am a potter and a printmaker. I like etching and linocut but nowadays I make silkscreen prints and sometimes print directly into my moleskine sketchbook. Last week I was printing some T-shirts and suddenly decided to print the same design on the cover of my Japanese folded Moleskine with the metallic water-based ink. This Japanese album will be used for the International Moleskine Exchange Project, group Moly_X_17.
I have also printed self-made water slide-off decals with the coat of arms. I thought the black cover of a moleskine sketchbook was too dark for black outlines and a helmet without a background. So I have painted it first with a spray can, the kind that street artists use for graffiti.
