A Creep Of Tortoises

Here’s a small edition of 6 drypoint intaglio prints I did today, based on a sketch I did recently of Jimmy the tortoise. Apparently the collective noun for tortoises is a ‘creep’. I think it refers to their way of walking; not a slur on their character πŸ™‚

I used a paper drypoint plate, printed with drypoint etching inkΒ  in shop black onto handmade paper with a beige handmade fibre paper for the chine colle.
