Bufo bufo (European Common Toad)

Bufo bufo
Lithography, 35x49 cm.

I made the two works above as a project for the subject `Lithography´ in my fifth year at Fine Arts. The invaluable `help´ of Professor Manzorro served to discourage all students in the course. In his first lesson he said we all were `a shameful burden´ and that we did not deserve the time he devoted to us; fortunately, that was his last year before retiring.
Manzorro asked me why I had left so much space to the left of the turtle dove and why I had not finished the toad ... no comment.
The teacher assistant supervised us and I got the results you see.
