Wednesday was national Cat Day but Andrew Ghrist is releasing his new art print this Friday for Halloween at 12 CST. The "Ocelot" is a 12"x24" 6 layer screen print on French steel grey paper with a signed and numbered edition of 50
I asked Andrew about the idea for the print:
i wanted to do a simple narrative without the loaded information of any outside influence or property.On sale Friday in his Etsy Shop etsy.com/shop/arghristprints
The narrative of "Ocelot" is in response to the mass of heron imagery in the work of the nature illustrator community and was originally going to be named "Death of a Heron". I also liked experimenting with the duality between then cute pet like characteristics and the fierce wild animal aspects of an Ocelot.
