I live in the desert, so my mind frequently wanders to all things aquatic since I miss the water so much.
I was asked to participate in a letterpress art show here in Phoenix and I chose to make some prints depicting some of my favorite, oft overlooked sea creatures.
Here we have two Sea Horses in their natural habitat. Seahorses prefer to swim in pairs with their tails linked together. They also mate for life and are one of the very few species where the males bear the children.
These are 5 color woodblock reduction prints.

As these are all hand carved and hand made, each one is unique and there are subtle variations from print to print.
