Did you know that the actual Great Wave, by Hokusai, is actually just one woodblock print in a series of them, called Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji? Of course, it was the first one, which is probably part of why it's so well-known. Even so, I think it's cool how the picture is really of a wave, but since there's a little tiny Mt. Fuji in the background, it gets to be part of the series. Also, Brian says that woodblock printing (like almost all printing in his opinion) is neat, and he'd like to try doing it at some point. Brian is a lame nerd who thinks that killing trees, grinding them up into a pulp, drying that pulp out, and then staining the remains with ink is one of the most incredible things imaginable. (Granted, my existence partly depends on this process, so maybe he's onto something there…)
Anyway, that's it for this week's Scribb1e. Be sure to come back next week, to see if I'm in a parody of some other classic masterpiece, or if Siobhán the Shirtless shows up again (eyeroll 🙄). If it isn't one of those things, it might actually be original! But, like I said, you'll just have to come back again and see.
