Conversing with Zebras


I like the many patterns that you find in the animal world, like zebra stripes, but they require a lot of patience when cutting the linoleum for a print. This one was a challenge!

They say that if you want to attract a group of zebras, of course, paint black and white stripes on a wall. Before you do that, you might consider looking for a calmer hybrid, a zorse of zonkey!

  1. Is the black stripe first or last ??!!

  2. Merci pour votre question! The black stripe was last to be printed. Each color was cut from the same linoleum and then printed on the same paper, one color at a time. It is usually from light to dark colors but not always! This one was at least six times through the press!
