Printmaking

Intelligence

I’ve been drawn back to my old love of printmaking these past few weeks. I’ve been carving a soft rubbery-like block of a product called softoleum. This is the first of two prints I’ve made so far. As I worked on it, it seemed the animal was saying something about the human hand in the dire condition of much wildlife. The first words that came to me were “We are not amused by your behaviour!” This was followed by “Smarten up humans!” that you see in the print.

I’m working small these days–this print is 4″ x 6″. Here’s a rough proof of the print on newsprint paper.
