"Dreams of Strawberries" (Millipede)

Woodcut reduction (6 layers of color), 4" x 4".
Available for purchase here. 

My daughter has pet millipedes. Most people (adults and children alike) have an "ew" reaction when she pulls them out, but she thinks they are cute. I think they are cute too. They have little faces, it tickles when they crawl on us, and when they are frightened, instead of biting or stinging or even crawling away at an alarmingly fast pace, they curl up like a little shell. I wanted to make a print of a millipede that was cheerful and pretty. I think this works.
