Dace Not Forgotten (left)
2000, pencil and ink
One of my best friends was leaving Japan and I was working on a painting for his going away. Since he was instrumental in the development of the “dace” lingo, I thought a crazy dace titled Dace Not Forgottenwould sum our time together nicely. I was very pleased with the result (he was, too) but unfortunately the final version is unavailable.
