“Zodiac” depicts the animals of the Chinese zodiac surrounding a central yin yang symbol. Each animal is accompanied by its name in Chinese characters. For this print, I was inspired by Chinese cut-paper designs.

THIS IS NOT A DIGITALLY REPRODUCED PRINT! I designed it, transferred it to the block, and carved the block with hand engraving tools. I then inked and printed each one by hand on a press in my in-house workshop.



All prints are shipped via the US Postal Service First Class with Delivery Confirmation.

Prints are packaged in clear, plastic sleeves with acid-free backing and are ready for gifting, propping up on a shelf, or safely transporting until framed. Prints are NOT mounted to the backing. All prints are packaged for shipping in sturdy recycled cardboard and envelopes.
