Furoshiki Security Check Series
I am exploring creating furoshiki that reflects on modern airplane travel. Furoshiki are eco-friendly traditional Japanese cloth wraps from an era when traveling was simpler. I painted the objects with gauche and then scanned them. I wanted a hand drawn feel to the textiles patterns.

The design features banned items such as scissors, needles, nail clippers, cigarette lighters, and oddly, snow globes.Below: the fabric wrapping a package as a furoshiki.
