The peacock and the dove

 A few weeks ago I was looking for something in my old school stuff and found 3 linoleum blocks I carved for a 3 color separation print. I carved them about 8 years ago when I was in school and even built a wood frame for them to keep them in place while printing. The image was of a peacock. It got me in the mood for some carving and I made this dove block. I think it came out pretty good but my inks are old and not great. I'm going to buy ink and try and reprint the peacock. The dove might look nice in white ink on a black t-shirt... I will post again when Ill get ink.
