Otherworldly Creature Series

My sketchbooks are filled with fantastical creatures. I decided to turn five of them into a consistent series. After the lino cutting, I took my time to explore a variety of backgrounds and mediums. The creatures are printed and painted on 12mm MDF board which sturdiness and natural touch is perfect for the subject. You can see some of the results below.

Schubbeflutsen are a mighty handy asset to your household: They rouse the fire and keep your house warm. Some people are less charmed by the because they cast coals from their volcano leaving scorch marks on the floor.

Not very smart but an exceptionally kind and lovable creature. Eats roots and mushrooms. Uses its extended eyes to peek over bushes.

Death of a Cicada Series

Death of a Cicada is a series of 31 relief prints with the Japanese Wabi-sabi theme: A world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The prints are a portrait of an unlucky (or lucky because immortalised?) cicada, found dead in my stairwell. 

You can read how I made the prints here.
