Block Print Tabbies Set, Fawnball and Wrinkled Pajamas in Autumn Colors

My Stanley as "Wrinkled Pajamas", block print

Printed in hand-mixed rust or warm brown water-based block print ink on purchased handmade paper, these prints are matted with acid free mats, backed with acid free foam core, and framed in natural finish or painted oak wood frames with premium quality glass.

The stripes made me do it! The clarity of tabby cat stripes as they outline a cat’s features and define its shape has always been an inspiration for more graphic designs in this four-part series.

My Fawn as "Fawnball", block print

These two designs were inspired by my cats. “Fawnball” illustrates how Fawn always kept an eye on me—though she is curled up and apparently sleeping, note that her is open and looking at you. “Wrinkled Pajamas” is how Stanley looked when he slept, as if he’d just gotten up from bed and his pajamas were all wrinkled.

Block printing is a technique wherein the artist carves the surface of a piece of linoleum, leaving raised areas which will become the image. Ink is rolled onto these raised areas, then a piece of paper is pressed against the block and when it’s lifted away the ink remains, leaving the image on the paper.

All are printed with a variety of colors and purchased handmade papers then matted and framed entirely by me. All are in 5” x 7” wood frames including glass and acid-free mat and backing.

You can find these two as well as other ink, mat and frame combinations of each printin my Etsy shop.

Printed in warm brown water-based block print ink on purchased orange threaded handmade paper, these prints are matted with natural white acid free mat, backed with acid free foam core, and framed in a flat profile burgundy wood frame with premium quality glass.

Here is the last of the four sets of these framed block prints which I currently have on hand. I have singles in many different combinations, and I’ll feature them sometime soon.

Two of the designs were inspired by my cats: “Fawnball” is how Fawn always kept an eye on me, and “Wrinkled Pajamas” is how Stanley looked when he slept, like a pile of laundry. The other two designs, “Let Me Clean You Up” and “Sunshine and Flowers” are from friends’ photos.
