This is one of two Intaglio prints i made at tafe. The theme set by our teacher was 'imaginary landscape' so i thought a tree man would be pretty neat. Not even a giant or anything. Just a dude growing himself a little forest for moths and ladybeetles to play in.
The process involved various layers of wax on a zinc plate being drawn or imprinted into and eaten away by acid. It's printed on beautiful paper specially made for this type of process and i'm probably gonna put one up for sale in my etsy shop when it's all up and running. I love these guys and i especially loved making them so i'm gonna frame one for myself.
