gira stretches

angelic gira, wise graf

During our various city wanderings this past summer we encountered lots of fine, furry felines. In celebration of today’s autumnal equinox, or vernal equinox if you’re reading this in the southern hemisphere, (and because there simply aren’t enough pictures of cats on the internet ;-) here’s a glimpse of how Holland’s urban kitties while away their lazy summer days…

I recently printed the fourth series in my ongoing 'Wonders from a Cabinet of Curiosities' project. This time the theme is vegetable rather than animal (fabulous fungi in fact 🍄), and what better day to post this series than #MycologyMonday (which, I believe, is a thing on IG!) Swipe --> to see all six 'shrooms in the series. Limited edition silkscreen prints are now available at the always awesome @otherist in Amsterdam (or from my online shop - link in bio) - #screenprinting #zeefdruk #serigraph #mushrooms #fungi #mycology #terrarium #glassjar #belljar #cloche #curiositycabinet #blackandwhite #graphic #drawing #pattern #art #printmaking #get_imprinted - #morel #oyster #nameko #crepidotus #amanitamuscaria #shiitake -
