“Sumi Kimono Hen” was made during the summer of 2021 from the blocks of “Kimono Hen”. The “hen” prints of 2017 were made for demonstrations, with the intent to print editions later. Four years passed. I decided to feature sumi, a rich, black ink made from soot and animal glue, and printed the editions with a completely new color palette.
