Year of the Rabbit / Ano del conejo



‘Year of the Rabbit MMXI’ ~ 'Ano del conejo MMXI'
Woodcut ~ Grabado en madera
Image size/tamano del imagen:  4 5/8” x 4”/12cm x 10cm
Edition:  43 + 1 AP (for me/para mi)

For the Year of the Rabbit I was heavily inspired by printmaker Diana Moll’s blog with her menagerie of adorable rabbits.  How can one do better  than that…  so this became a cuddly rabbit waiting to see if you would try to pick him up.  I actually wanted to title it ‘Year of the Moll-haired Rabbit’ but realized I don’t know what a mohair looks like and I didn’t want insult Diana’s furry friends.

This is the first time in ages that I kept the edition size down to exactly the number in the exchange.  I like the idea of them being special and limited to only my Baren friends.   Also I love the idea that this block is now cancelled ... very liberating.

Para el Ano del Conejo me inspiro muchisimo el blog de Diana Moll con su coleccion de conejitos lindos.  Como puede uno mejorar a este...  entonces este es un conejo adorable, esperando a ver si lo recojas para acariciarlo.  En realidad quise titularlo 'Year of the Moll-haired Rabbit' ... un juego de la palabra inglesa 'mohair' que no sale en castellano en ningun sentido ... y tambien como no tengo ningun idea como parece un conejo angora no quise insultar a esos amiguitos de Diana.

Este es la primera vez en mucho tiempo en que hize una edicion exacta para el intercambio.  Me gusta el idea de que son unicos limitados a solo mis amigos de Baren.  Tambien me encanto el idea de que este bloque ya esta cancelado...  me siento libre.

What a sweetie. I love the white on black, very striking.

Thanks, Ellen... I've had a bunch of positive comments about the white on black. I was amazed at how easy it was to pull the prints since I didn't have to worry about the ink on the carved areas. I may do this more often, especially since I've been pulling with a baren lately.
