The title of this engraving is "Siili II". Paper size 5"x5". Siili means hedgehod in Finnish. When I was a kid we used to have hedgehogs living under our cabin. Every summer we would catch little fish to feed them and put out a bowl of milk. It was so much fun to watch the little spiky balls snuffle around the house.

The print has been hand carved into a resingrave block and printed with ink on natural colored Stonehenge paper with a Lino-o-scribe proofing press. The edition is 60 and all the prints are numbered and signed by the artist. (Edition size means how many prints were printed that met the artists standards. After the number has been set, no more of the same prints are printed from the same block.)

This image is printed as a reduction block. That means I hand carved out some areas and printed the block with a light yellow. Then the same block was carved a little more, and printed on the same spot with a brown color and carved again and printed with black. The original carving was destroyed to make the second and third, so there can never be made any more.

I posted a video of how the reduction blocks are printed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Inc_Q2dR5s

Prints come in plastic sleeves with a slip that briefly gives the background info for the artist and print. They are shipped flat in between cardboard.

I was sold out of these prints, but was returned a couple from a store in Finland, so posting them up here for sale. :)
