Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This is a thin sheet of unryu (cloud dragon) paper against a dark background. The dark background serves to amplify the white fibers that give this paper its unique look. As artwork in real life, unryu has a slightly 3D effect with the coarse white fibers embedded throughout - but this is very hard to relay in a photograph.
This is the title Karate-Do in Japanese Kanji with a reddish-brown Yin Yang symbol in the background.
I created this fine art giclee print on a special handmade unryu paper (which is also known as "Dragon Cloud" paper). Although impossible to photograph, in real life, you will see many white fibers embedded in this handmade paper. I love the way this print came out - and I love unryu paper. I just wish photography would do it justice - you gotta see this in person to appreciate it.
I am experimenting with different designs and papers, so each one that I create is unique.
I can also make one custom to your specifications - just contact me.

Gary's random little things about China:
You can search long and hard, in every drugstore and sundries market in China, and you will not find underarm deodorant for sale anywhere.
After traveling all over China, I know this to be true everywhere in China except Hong Kong.
If you ask a Chinese person why there is no deodorant for sale, they will tell you plainly, "Chinese people do not smell bad".
My reply is, "Have you never been on a crowded bus in the summer?"
