This countryside fox (Vulpes vulpes) design is my latest linocut print and my last print of 2021. It’s in a traditional arts and crafts inspired vintage style. I used burnt sienna ink on cream printer’s paper (zerkhall paper). I call him Hubert the Fox. He’s available to buy from my shop now.

This is an original, hand printed, hand cut, linoprint. This burnt sienna printed edition is limited to 10.
Always expect little variations in texture and some distinctive impressions within each handprinted limited edition when you print by hand. It does means every print is unique! My process isn’t high tech because I don’t use a press. Designs are created on my living room table with a baren and the back of a wooden spoon.
Happy New Year to you. Do you have any hopes or dreams for 2022? I plan on making more prints and hopefully sell more too. If I’m lucky, it would be lovely to go abroad for a few weeks. Somewhere with mountains and ancient forests would be my ideal trip!
