Better late than never.... DEGREE SHOW!

'The Fox & The Crow' etching series

Having loved doing and making 'The Hare & the Tortoise' book of etchings so much, I really wanted to illustrate another favourite fable of mine 'The Fox & the Crow'. The story is about a lovely crow who finds a piece of cheese, but is tricked by the fox through flattery who then eats it all up! The story is one that has a pretty useless moral ('dont trust flatterers') and is silly but I think that is what makes it fun! Its good to have a bit of silliness in you! The story is a 10- part series of etchings on 'natural' Hahnemuhle paper and contain both aquatint and Chine Colle processes. (selected examples below)
