katagami stencil five unveiled

The katagami stencil for the fifth and final furoshiki design in the urban series is done.

This design is untitled at this stage but should be named shortly. I have been thinking of calling it 'pavement' but if you have any inspired thoughts on a suitable title for this image I would love to hear them! I am open to suggestions.

This stencil required a high level of attention to detail both in the drawing and cutting stage due to the multitude of fine lines. It also took quite a bit of concentration as I drew the design to scale straight onto to the katagami in 'stencil' form - thinking all the time about which sections would stay when cut and which sections would go.

The fifth furoshiki design in the urban series is well underway.

The imagery in this design is of a manhole cover partially covered by a shop roller door - perhaps not so useful? I took a photograph of this anomaly in a little side street near K's House hostel in Kyoto, Japan.

Below are some progress shots of the katagami stencil for this design. Nearly there!
