Nancy Seki was a writer and artist in Japan well known for her signature "Eraser Print" pieces. Before her death in 2002, she created and popularized this technique of using only erasers and cutters to create prints in the style of caricatures of popular Japanese TV personalities. She would often also pair these caricatures with harsh criticisms and witty commentary on these celebrities. This bright and pop-py washi called "Pole Vaulting" features a gymnast pole vaulting in cartoon animation sequencing.
