Junko Mizuno, an amazing Japanese artist I love, opened her second solo Canadian gallery show last week. I was lucky enough to have my friend ask me to make her a corset to wear while she was working at the gallery and for a burlesque performance later! This design was inspired by Junko's "Fire bird".

I designed and constructed the corset from scratch. All the patterns and graphics on the corset were digitally illustrated by me based directly on Junko's piece. After that I silk screened the flowers on the fabric for the side and back panels and screened the animals. For the animals also the grey shading by hand. I am so proud of how it turned out and Junko herself complimented the corset to me which was the icing on the cake! *squee* (the shape of the corset looks a bit wonky here because I photographed it with the animals completely flat which isn't the natural way it would sit)

Thank you! The "flower" print was a seriously big pain in the butt to screen (first time doing a repeating pattern ever!). I'm glad you like the combination Smiley
