15 Lino’s in 30 Days – Day 22

I like everything about this image, the striped face, the big button-nose , the feet… and also how the fur ended up. Again, like the skunk-print a lot of fun to cut.

15 Lino’s in 30 Days – Day 21

Black-and-white animal number two: the European badger!
The European badger has a bit more of a sweet appearance compared to the American badger and honey badger who look more stocky. European badgers are known to have big families and share their burrows with other animals like rabbits, red foxes and raccoon dogs.
All badgers are carnivores. European badgers feed mainly on earthworms, large insects, small mammals, carrion, cereals and root tubers.

15 Lino’s in 30 Days – Day 19

Confession time. The last few prints were fun to do but I missed something. I guess they
are all very open with not much shadow to play with.

So I decided to look for some black-and-white animals that would provide ‘play’.
First one is this baby skunk. I can’t wait for tomorrow!

15 Lino’s in 30 Days – Day 18

This is an opossum. The image is not too clear (you can’t see its snout) but I fell in love with the little paws, ear and overall fluffiness.

15 Lino’s in 30 Days – Day 14

Day 7 and 8 were dedicated to a bundle of sleeping wolf. It’s white and fluffy and a lot of people thought it was a fox. Before that this little one was already in the planning and now it’s ready!
So here’s a sleepy ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’!

15 Lino’s in 30 Days – Day 12

Here’s the lino of the naked cat I carved yesterday, it’s called a sphynx. As I understood they are bred with (mutated) hairless cats and are now a breed.

15 Lino’s in 30 Days – Day 10

As far as cutting goes this one was a welcome relief from all the fluff. The line work is very different here because in my previous 4 lino’s the cuts suggest form through hair and in this one just form.
Nice little wiener-dog.
