This tiger print was inspired by a drawing I did a few years ago, which is a firm favourite of mine. Interpreting it into a graphic style colour lino print was an enjoyable challenge! I think my 'kitty' looks too friendly to be a man-eater... This is not a print made digitally and printed by machine; this 3 colour lino reduction print has all been hand made - drawn, lino carved and printed by hand, so there are minor variations making each and every print unique. A small edition of only 4 prints. Metallic copper ink was the principle colour used, which will 'catch the light'. One piece of lino was used throughout, with colours added and more lino cut away each time. You can see some of the stages of printmaking, by clicking through the photographs. Printed with water based light fast ink on 300 gsm Somerset satin acid free paper. Signed and numbered on the front in pencil. Room setting images are visually as close to scale as possible, but not to actual scale.
