In The Forest

Here’s a final print. Lots of detail in this one so it took a long time to carve, but I think the end result has been worth it…I now find myself wanting to order some much larger lino blocks and make things even more complex lol ;) I think I’ll do a few more at this scale first though. Would be nice to get a small set together for Artweeks…Anyway, hopefully this is an image people will find both beautiful and curious…make of it what you will :)

Technically: Very impressive indeed.

"Make of it what you will?": If they're werewolves he's in for a good time. If not? He's got problems...

Thanks Ian and Melissa. Not werewolves, so he’s definitely got problems Ian ;) I know what you mean about all the colours taking a LONG time to do Melissa, the next print I’m doing is going to have about 5 colours, so it’ll be a lot of late nights :)

This reminds me of a Tennessee Williams quote: “A prayer for the wild at heart, kept in cages.”
