These two foxes were the subject of my Japanese woodblock print / new year’s card last year. They’re all about play. They’re friends and maybe they’re in love (no one is sure). I love Berlin’s foxes and how they have an independent life alongside the human residents of this city. I think they probably play a lot at night when people aren’t looking.
This is what you see on the front of the card (when folded):
Working at the Druckatelier in Berlin (http://www.druckatelier.eu/)
This year’s etching was inspired by my heroes of the Berlin streets, bike messengers. This ecologically mobile Santa is speeding past the Brandenburg Gate, heading south with a bag full of happiness for the new year.
This is a three-plate etching with parts in drypoint and mezzotinto.
The kohlrabi print I did last year has turned into a fascination with the entire cabbage family. With savoy cabbage, I love the completely different textures of the two sides of the leaves, and the contrast between light and dark, inside and out. What’s next? I can’t say quite yet, but there will be more of the Brassica family in my future.
