A hare visits my garden on most days. I tried to make several sketches of him to capture its joie-de-vivre, but a crow kept appearing in all of these. Finally I had to give in, and include this pesky crow in my print. The crow and the hare seem to be having an intimate conversation, creating a quirky, whimsical illustration that is bound to make anyone smile. This is an idyllic spring scene and I have tried to create a sense of movement and the gentle evening breeze.
This is a linocut, created from my original design and sketches that I transferred to the lino and then each print was inked and printed by hand, making each print unique and original. This is in dark charcoal using oil-based inks on smooth Zerkall printing paper. This edition has colour added to it with the use of ethereal handmade Japanese tissue paper using a technique called Chine Colle. Each piece is printed individually by hand, and so there would be minor variations hence making each unique.
This is a very small edition of 5. The print is sent loose and unframed in a reinforced envelope with an attractive acid-free tissue wrapping and mount board backing from my studio 'Hedge and Hog' in north-west of England. It should fit most standard frames.
I will also enclose a leaflet with photos of the process, and the lino block that your linocut is made of, and details of what a linocut is.
