"Eastern Screech Owl" and "Black-Banded Owl" (black and white versions)

Two linocuts
Oil-based ink on Kinwashi paper
6" x 6" (block) 7.5" x 9.5" (paper) each

Yesterday I mentioned sketching, photographing, and going out to listen to real owls last week in preparation for making A Wise Old Owl handmade book.

This weekend I took it a step farther and made these two linoleum cuts of owls. This is the style that I want to use for A Wise Old Owl Click here to check out the Kickstarter campaign that runs through February 13. I'm going to hand-color a couple that I printed on Stonehenge paper today and will post them on my blog tomorrow.

These are for sale on my Etsy store. Eastern Screech Owl found here, and Black-banded Owl found here.
