Indiegogo Campaign Art Card #1: Portrait of Edward Lear
Oil-based ink on cream-colored, 90" smooth paper
This is the first of 8 original woodcut art cards being created during my Indiegogo fundraising campaign. These will be thank-you gifts for all funders who contribute $20 or more. Funders will get to choose their preferred design to receive.
All 8 will also be for sale at my Etsy Store. This card can be purchased now by clicking here. All proceeds from Etsy sales between now and April 24th go directly to fund Words On Woodcuts Press!
This is a portrait of Edward Lear, the 19th century writer/illustrator who authored The Owl and the Pussycat.
Here's one of my favorite limericks also penned by Lear:
There was a Young Person of Smyrna,
Whose Grandmother threatened to burn her;
But she seized on the cat,
And said, "Granny, burn that!
You incongruous Old Woman of Smyrna!"
