By Mark Patraw
Wood and acrylic paint.
This is supposed to be my name converted into Japanese katakana characters.
While the Japanese translation of my first name is correct (although I have seen "Mark" translated into the shorter "Maku" as well), I later learned that my last name isn't (I got the erroneous translation from an online Japanese » English converter).
"Patara" would be a much better phonetic interpretation than "Patsurabu".
This was a project I did for a college art class.
