The World in Print

Posted by Gaby Basora on

Where do the ideas for the Tucker prints come from? Candy wrappers.  The painted side of a building.  Jun'ichirō Tanizaki’s book, Naomi, flowers in the garbage can tossed out too soon while still colorful, open and louche.     Ideas and thoughts come from everywhere.
