In Memory of our Friend and Fellow Printmaker, Wayne Miyamoto,


I just got one of the saddest emails. Our friend Wayne Miyamoto died today while doing research on his sabbatical in Mexico. An incredible artist and advocate for printmaking and special needs education in Hawaii. This picture was taken of the three of us in front of the "Temple of Heaven" in Beijing. My heart hurts...this is the type of artist we should all aspire to be.
