The ripple watchers

Based on a sketch from a previous post, I was convinced that this MC Escher-style positive-negative trick could improve and that a linocut could be the perfect medium. Also not giving the game away entirely with the name was a good move, so I came up with a less literal title. See for the original idea. The fish shape has been simplified down to its bare essentials now it's in negative. Linocut with water-based ink on newsprint, (artist's proof).
