The naked giant of Dorset

Cutting the tree of this print took me ages. I think they carved the Cerne Abbas Giant fastest than me.

At the beginning it had a dog walker but I made a mistake in the legs of the guy and took it off, leaving only the dog. But when I printed it, the giant seemed to be about to give the dog a good bash. It wasn't that funny, so I took the dog off too.

I had the idea to add the rain like in the other prints, but the image looked so clean, just like the landscape in Dorset, clean and tidy. So I thought in presenting it in a pair like a Before and After:

And then the idea progressed into more stages, like an Andy Warhol Cerne Abbas Giant.
