This Mexico City kimono and a slew of others are derived from my own visual/textual material. Also, I’ve created many other kimonos which are collaborative because the kimono material originates from other artists – with their permission – and with due credit made on each image. My technique involves digital manipulation, collaged layers, and textual embroidery with photoshop.

Not all kimono designs, including this one, made it into this book. A set of kimonos in their entirety can be viewed as a slideshow at my Flickr site HERE. Just click on the image in the slideshow to view additional info, which often includes a link to my collaborators’ original image and to their websites.
