Gray Fox – fetal position 1

Gray Fox | Urocyon cinereoargenteus

This gyotaku-style mammal print deserves close consideration, there is a depth to the ink that makes this print unique and beautiful.  We’ve yet to recreate it I think, though we do keep stumbling on new methods and textures that are equally intriguing.   The fox is in a fetal position which obscures the form a bit.  But I think I like that subtle display.  Its in contrast to many of our other prints, especially the traditional fish gyotaku prints that are very direct and apparent.  Sometimes the imagination fills in the gaps nicely.

This is also one of the few done on a black background.  If you like it, check out the Mexican Freetail Bats 1 and 2.
