Graphics: Linoleum: A personal take on the ancient "Huginn & Muninn" theme.
This was dravn in freehand direcly on the board with no gridlines used and no edits made. It was cut in one go. For this reason symmetry is not 100% accurate.

For the line cutting I used a v-iron (#1) in stead of my usual favorite, the contour knife. I cut in one circular motion, from start to end of the loop. For the background I used a semi-broad u-iron (#3, I think).
The print was made in a few versions:
- The first version was printed on top of (/over) a non-figurative glue print in a lighter blue colour, specifically made for this purpose. I do not have a photo at the moment.
- Then, three prints on white Japan Paper (top photo)
- Last, one print on handmade coloured paper (below)
Note: All photos were taken with a phone so the colours are a bit off. The print colour is a dark blue, and the colour of the handmade paper is a dark gray.
