Cat 11X15 Woodblock print

Cat that i am working on. I hope to have some color prints tomorrow. I used my 1.5 mm u-gouge almost exclusively for this block. i did use my knife on some of the lines in the face and a v-gouge here and there and a 3.0 mm u-gouge for the tummy fur. shina plywood.

I just looked at the enlarged view of the print. Beautiful detail in the fur, and I love how the soft edges of the fur and "wood grain" contrast with the harder outline of the cat.
