Canterbury Tails, The Knight's Tale
We strive but as those dogs did for the bone;
They fought all day, and yet their gain was none.
Till came a kite while they were still so wroth
And bore the bone away between them both.
I'm half way thru the printing. I had to stop and clean the block. I find the water-based inks (Daniel Smith anyway) get a little gunky build-up. I'll print the rest this evening or tomorrow and get them off to the mails on Mon.
I'm particularly pleased with the way this block came together. It's a perfect likeness of Loki and Freya, who were actually fighting over a dead football at the time I took the picture. I think Freya, on the right, won. She usually does. ;-j
