Octopus lino print green background



Cephalopod 2 is my second octopus-inspired lino print. This image is influenced by gorgeous vintage, scientific-style illustrations. Such intelligent, alien-like creatures move gracefully and seemingly effortlessly through the oceans. I hand drew, then carved this octopus. I mixed my own green ink and applied using a roller to create a background on which to print the black octopus lino print. The paper is white Hosho Select Japanese Washi paper. This has a deckled edge and is light but very, very strong.
Frame not included. This print will be sent in a postal tube.
