octopus lino print



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 then printed it on our studio etching press in a Prussian Blue ink. There is also a black version available on the same paper. The paper is Kitakata Select natural coloured 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.
