A master of printmaking and an imagination of great heights, Tomiyuki Sakuta created intricate and finely tuned prints depicting wildly composed faces, 100 to be exact. Each piece comes in a wooden box decorated with a copper plate with the title of the series engraved, accompanied with a grinning face.

Fittingly, Bleck created a soft lively looking tree since she has always felt a connection to them from her childhood.
