I had to make a print for art class and came up with this... the title is pretty self explanatory, heh. The pattern in the wing started as tiger stripes but evolved into something else. I despise making prints but I thought this came out really nicely (okay, to be honest its the best print I've ever done ). I cut myself twice doing this too, hehe, oops. Clumsy.

Btw, I had to shrink this down _alot_ cos of the size restrictions but I uploaded two more pictures of this at normal size so you can see the pretty colors :) it actually looks a little better irl cos the brown parts are actually gold.

Hey! Remember me? The guy you wouldn't write to? I had to carve one of this prints for art class too, but it was a hand playing a gitarr, actually pretty lame, not as yours! I love the design, and I know how dificult it is to come up with a nice design. What are those dark blobs at the right? Just to fill space? Anyway, you're welcome to visit my gallery, I have some new additions on their way...

The greatness of linoleum prints... We all hate the dull carving tools, the lack of fresh ink, the shortage of rollers... Waiting for the press especially. Nice pattern. It looks like feathers, but almost, if you look closely, like people dancing, or fae dancing, or elves... Take your pick. Nice work.

Pretty. I remember doing a wood print in my art class.. Didn't cut myself with those dull cutters.. Instead I tore up my hand with the splinters. Smart, ne? ^_^; I like this. It's a very fanciful design. What did you carve it from? Wood or linoleum?
