Artist's description:

This is a small lino block print I did of my cat Sparta. Sparta is a small tortoiseshell [calico] cat who specialises in doing high fives, being cute and wholesale murder. She also likes to dump dead [and sometimes not dead] animals on top of me when I’m asleep in bed in the early hours of the morning. During the day she likes sitting on the stairs, smacking people in the head when they walk past. And biting my toes. And sneaking into bed on cold nights and sticking her icy paws in the middle of my back.

It’s a reduction block print, a technique that printmaker’s often call the suicide method because you cut all the colours from the same block which destroys the block in the process. If something goes wrong, you can’t go back and redo it. I’ve used three oil colours on this on top of a creamy coloured Zercoll 145 gsm paper.
