Carving stamps

Fauna A-dress

For our Fauna dresses I wanted to create a print full of NorthAmerican animals, the figures should feel like woodcuts.

At the studio, I hand-carved stamps out of linoleum and white erasers (yes, cool trick!  softer to carve than linoleum, though not as durable).  I carved birds, bears, deer, bugs, etc.  and print them in nice muted colors.
