"Tiger Eye"

Image is 8" x 5.25", paper is 12.5" x 9.5"
Woodcut (reduction)
Water-based inks on rag paper
Edition of 7

I've wanted to make prints of a tiger for a while and this is my first attempt. Had a piece of wood with a nice knot and grain around it that reminded me a of tiger's eye, so I got to work on this little two layer reduction.

Beautiful camouflage
Black against white
Stripes wriggle
Slither like snakes
Spread out like branches
Then wither away

More to come!
