Making Linocuts

Last fall I took a printmaking class and learned how to create prints using a variety of techniques including etchings, chine colle (pasted papers) and Linocut printing. Here is a print I did of a zebra.
I was inspired by photos of zebras taken by my mom while she was visiting Africa.
When working with linocut, you are cutting away all the areas you want white. These areas will not pick up any ink. I had fun creating the stripes, and shapes of the plants in the background.
