12" x 12"
4 color reduction woodcut
This is the first woodcut for my "Some Pigs" project, an AiRM which will culminate in a solo exhibition at 1040 Creative in November of this year.
This particular print illustrates the final scene in Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Pigling Bland, where the title character and his soulmate Pig-Wig manage to escape from their wretched circumstances into freedom in the wilderness, where Pigling has plans to settle down and become a potato farmer. The text in the print is from a traditional British song, excerpts of which are included in Potter's story.
