Hamster Love

This print is about the time a tiny hamster came into the veterinary clinic where I used to work. I had just learned how to do abdominal scans so I did a scan, which was difficult because the abdomen was so small and the hamster was so tiny. I wanted to make an image about how ridiculously large the scanner was in comparison to the patient, and about how much love and tenderness we have for our furry friends.
This is a two block woodcut which was laser cut from patterns made in lino. It has been printed like a monoprint with lots of selective inking and hand burnishing.
