A few delays, a few improvements in my technical processes, and now the ant finally can bite the birdcatcher on the foot.


Originally, he was barefoot. I was not sure how much to remove for the foot overall, so I cut guiding lines at the base and ankle. I inked it, and saw a sandal on the man’s foot. So here he is, shod.


Print 4/5. I took this before pressing the print: the longer dampening process makes the print a little warped.

Now to find more of this paper for dampening. Its texture gives a very suitable tile-like impression, and I hope I have more in the drawers.
