About feature image: 31 Flavors Invading Japan Series / Today’s Special, 1982, 35-color woodblock print with hand-watercolor, Edition of 500      While most of Masami’s art is watercolor painting on paper or canvas, he has a limited number of works done by various printmaking processes. His only true woodblock print in the Ukiyo-e process are the 31 Flavors Invading Japan/Today’s Special(1982) and the Sarah and Octopus/ Seventh Heaven (2001). Four “Hawaii Snorkel Series” Prints from Tyler Graphics in 1993 combined western etching with contemporary Japanese woodblock techniques. Other than these, a handful of lithographs and etchings complete Teraoka’s forays into the print medium.
