This is the first stand-alone print in almost two years that I made; other lino cuts I made in the meantime were part of a book or embedded in another context. You may remember: I started cutting lino with some landscapes (Night at the River was the best in this series, I think), then came a series of lions, the nightlion the largest print among then, and then I stopped for a while, being a little frustrated, to be honest. The following cuts that I made were always part of something: For the Smiley Oracle, for the Awful German Language I cut lino of course, and I made the monster’s eyes zine. But all these cuts were tiny and felt quite different from a print that I want to distribute as a sheet of paper. – And now I am pretty pleased and proud of how it turned out!
