Christmas Card 2012: Barn Owl linocut!

4" x 6" unmounted linoleum; cutting begun on bench hook / inking plate.
I can turn the linoleum as I work for easier cutting.
Closeup on the owl's face!
Linoleum scraps. They add up quickly!
Detail of the number 5 Speedball cutting tip, which I used to
remove the large background areas.
Background fully cut! Now adding the details.
The owl gains its feathers.
Different lighting, just for fun.
Sketchbook drafts and finished linoleum side-by-side.
Two sketchbook test prints and inked linoleum.

First Christmas card printed! I made eight in total.
