This was my first time using the technique of Moku Hanga, the Japanese term for woodblock print (moku means wood and hanga means print). Japanese woodblock prints are known especially for their intense use of color and for the fact that the pigments are water-based rather than oil-based.
This piece is based on a fictional woman named "Rosita," who I drew during one of my trips to Mexico City. There is not much to say about Rosita except that the two sides of her eccentric personality are always competing for attention.
