”Capybara Oasis” is a hand-carved linoleum block print printed ink black ink on 16x20” natural kitikata paper. The print features a river oasis featuring 22 of the world’s largest rodents, Capybara. The capybara are sprinkled around the river bank and in the water wading with their babies. On the river bank, you can see lots of flora and fauna like heart-shaped philodendrons, tons of mushrooms, and egrets! This block was inspired by the magical world making of Studio Ghibli and hopes to entice viewers into the lush world. Taking over 30 hours to carve, this print is apart of an ongoing series of hand carved linoleum block prints inspired by traditional Japanese wood blocks.
*Please note that due to the nature of hand-carved linoleum block printing, every print will have its own unique quality. Each edition is inspected to be the best quality and similar, but I cannot ensure exact replica of the print pictured on this site. Part of the magic of printmaking is all of the print-specific marks like "noise" or carving marks that add to the feel of the print. Please take note of this when ordering.
