aheartofglass very kindly sent me a new etching tool in the Ongoing Wish Swap. Smiley  I took it for a test drive this week, and made a cat! (well, several cats actually ...) It's a drypoint etching, drawn freehand with my new scribe on a metal plate, then printed on a small etching press. It's about 3" square.

I was very pleased with the result of one evening's work - can't wait to try something more ambitious soon!

I'd love to hear what you think of it - and I'd be really interested in any suggestions for subjects that might suit this style of artwork too!
