I made this lino block print of the fabulously-named discomedusa jellyfish.

Jellyfish have such beautiful, fluid, organic lines. This seems to mirror the view of Ernst Haekel, the famed German biologist, naturalist, philosopher, physician, professor and artist, whose book "Art Forms in Nature" filled with lovely 19th century scientific illustrations of biology inspired my original drawing and then carving in linoleum of this creature.

This is an original lino block print of a discomedusa jellyfish, printed in white, water-based block printing ink on 'unryu teal' Japanese paper. (I would describe the paper as navvy not teal, but that's what the paper was called nonetheless). The paper has many visible fibres, which add to the organic feel of the piece and makes each print rather unique. The edition is limited to 9 prints, each of which are produced by hand. The sheets are 17.8 cm by 19.7 cm (7 inches by 7.75 inches).
