About time I updated...
This is from a really fun Letterpress workshop I did back at the beginning of term. We were all allocated a number and had to produce a 2 colour print using wood and/or metal movable type.
I got number 8. I chose to go for a fairly predictable option and made an octopus. I liked him though... He's based on this little fella..
He's a blue ringed octopus and he's actually only as big as a golf ball. But he's really poisonous and has enough venom in him to kill 26 grown men in minutes. He's also the only octopus with venom that is harmful to humans.
I printed a layer of blue rings over the fluoro orange. I'll post the results when I get the cards back after Xmas.
