It's taken a while, but I finally got to ink up my Sperm Whale lino-cut today. Originally it was just supposed to be a quick card for a friend's birthday, but I couldn't stop carving once I got started. I'm pretty happy with the print, so I've decided to pop it on tote bags and make it available to y'all.
Above: my original sketch on the lino, the blank tote and materials (I use Speedball fabric block printing inks) and the stamp getting inked up.
The design is my own, inspired by a life-time of chasing Cetaceans and my husbands obsession with Moby Dick. The tote is available with a turquoise or black
print of the Sperm Whale. For more info or to order, please visit my Teeny Wee Shop.
