prints by japanese artist tetsuo aoki.
these are said to be woodcut prints, but i highly doubt that...
i'm not well versed in printmaking, but these look to be aquatint prints, much, much rather than woodcut.
but regardless of what they really are, i just love them!
the above images are from jennifer warburton's flickr.
found through designersgotoheaven.
