Cosmetic surgery

I made this linocut a little while ago, and had another look at the blackbird yesterday. Seemed to me he needed a little refining – nothing drastic, just a little bit of shaping round his tum and shoulders to make him look a slightly more svelte.

I think the minor cosmetic surgery has done the trick. I printed this on some beautiful white Japanese paper. A little burnishing with the back of a wooden spoon and he was ready. I think Mr. Blackbird will be joining me at the farmers’ market next weekend, and in my Etsy and Folksy shops very soon.
