This fable was started before the Hare and Tortoise was finished, stopped due to creative block, and now is finished before The Mouse and the Frog (that has been blocked by the introduction of this image into my creative space).

For several reasons, it is rare that I draw directly onto the lino or wood. I did so this time to test my drawing skills.


This is a small piece (about 4×6) and so was quick to cut.


Using an inexpensive sketch sheet and water-based ink (usually I prefer an oil-based ink), I quickly pressed this nice, even print.
