Man Slain by a Tiger

Man Slain by a Tiger. Screen-print. 56 x 56 cms.

Image by Clive Hicks-Jenkins, printed in an edition of 35 by Daniel Bugg at Penfold Press.

Last weekend print-maker Daniel Bugg arrived at Ty Isaf with a brown paper parcel containing proofs and prints of my first screen-print project with the Penfold Press, Man Slain by a Tiger. (You can read about the genesis of the print HERE.) Dan has made a wonderful job of the image, and it was a pleasure to sit down with him at the dining-table on Saturday morning to number and sign the edition of thirty-five prints.

In a fortnight I’ll be making the stencils for the first image in our fourteen print series based on the medieval poem, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. I’m using the Simon Armitage translation/reworking for my inspiration, which is the version I like best. The print will be launched in time for Christmas.

  1. Congratulations to you and Dan on such a wonderful print. I’m delighted to have brought such talented people together and I am greatly looking forward to all the exciting things to come!!

  2. Beautifilly evocative. Just the righr balance of fright and comedy. Love the depth felt at the tail, and, as in the original inspirations, Munrow seems both placidly in some other place and ….Dead! Can’t wait to see as Gawain continues….

  3. It has been a bit difficult, but I have finally been able to order a print.
    Next time, when the Sir Gawain and The Green Knight series begin to come out, I shall know how to order straight away.
    I can’t wait for the print. I was going to give it to one of my grandchildren who wants to be an explorer when he grows up , but maybe I´ll wait : I don´t want to frighten him !
