Green Man for Folktober
Posted 4 days ago and submitted by Becca Thorne | Share link: http://illo.cc/94551

‘Tis the season of Instagram art challenges, and I couldn’t resist Sin Eater’s first prompt for Folktober. I love me a Green Man!

This is a run of 50 small prints, hand-burnished on lokta paper and available to buy through my shop.
