This print was first shown at the Wolf and the Fox exhibition in December 2012.

The Fox (Kitsune) is a common character in Japanese folklore, either depicted as a wise guardian or as a trickster. The Fox often possess magical abilities including the ability to assume human form. They often change into a young girl, but they have difficulty hiding their tails. Many tales also include a jewel glowing with kitsune-bi, or fox-fire, holding a part of The Fox’s magical power or even part of its soul; the kitsune will die if separated from it for long. The foxfire could be related to western tales of the will-o’-the-wisp’ mischievously leading lone travelers off the path at night.

Drypoint is an intaglio printmaking technique; a set number of prints (edition) are printed by the artist from a handmade plate. The drawing is incised into a plate with a hard-pointed "needle" or diamond point. Traditionally, the plate was copper or zinc, but today, a clear acrylic sheet is commonly used. The plate is inked and the ink is transferred onto cotton paper using a printing press.

All prints are shipped flat in a ridged mailer.
