'Octavia's Parables' is a 11x14 inch hand-carved linoleum block print in ombre teal and green ink on hand-made natural fiber paper. The print reads a quote from my favorite author-- Octavia E. Butler: "All that you touch, you change. All that you change, changes you. The only lasting truth is change. God is change." The quote is a massively important quote from one of my favorite books of hers, Parable of the Sower. This print had been living in my mind for 4 years and has come to me during 2022 when my biggest lesson for the year was 'Flow like water'-- change is inevitable.
'Octavia's Parables' is offered in three paper colorways: natural while, natural brown, and natural green.
*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.
