I've just finished a 'varied edition' of lino prints. The simple design and the subject matter gave me the chance to experiment and use some brighter colours. I think I should end up with about 15 usable prints.
The idea started out as a stag beetle with a face on each body segment. It developed from looking at butterflies and other insects/animals having the symmetrical patterns of faces and eyes on their backs and wings.
Each of the faces on the body segments can also be 'read' as two faces that are mirror images (well that's as simple as I can explain it).
The design has ended up looking very 'Samurai'.
