This linoleum block print captures a leopard I saw at the zoo, turning around with quite the question on her face. I so loved the bold and clear spots that I decided to create a block print of just the spots.
It’s printed in several ways. On paper it’s black on white rice paper, sometimes hand-colored with watercolor tints, or on various earth-tone papers, my favorite the warm tan. I’ve also printed it in black on a jute tote bag. Prints may also be matted and/or framed.
Block printing is a technique wherein the artist carves the surface of a piece of linoleum, leaving raised areas which will become the image. Ink is rolled onto these raised areas, then a piece of paper is pressed against the block and when it’s lifted away the ink remains, leaving the image on the paper.

Order a jute tote bag
I imprinted my wildlife block print “Yes?” on both sides of a pre-made jute tote bag or small purse and detailed the edges with a spotted print. The bag is 8″ x 10″ x 3″, lined with thin clear vinyl and holds its shape well. Handles are sturdy plastic coated cord covered with jute. I only purchased and printed two of these bags to experiment, so when they sell out they are out of stock until I can find another similar bag.
You can also find these two items on my Wildlife Block Prints page, along with any other items that may be available. I occasionally print tees and placemats and curtains in small quantities, so check back to see what else I may have printed.Other items with the same art or design To find all items on this site with the same art or design, use the search box for the name of the artwork and you'll find all that's available.
