Thank you!
I'm still looking for a good paper to print the final ones.
It must be clean enough and keep that interesting texture.

Uh huh, I see, doesn't sounds like an easy task. Sometimes these delicate issues can be the hardest, indeed!

A walk to a sushi restaurant, maybe?

For your first linocut, this is pretty epic. I tried them when I was fourteen/fifteen and couldn't get the balance right. Splendid stuff! Did you make a variety of layers? (And I'm going to look at the link now.)

Thank you a lot for your comment.
There was 4 layers on this one : pale blue, blue, red and finally black.
I'm trying to create something more complex for the next one : 7 layers... but I'm lost in the details!
"Does that small dot belong to layer 1, 3 or 5? And that microscopic line???? Arrgl!"

I love how the red on the sleeves forms an arrow pointing to the lantern. For a first linocut this is great! :)
