Stilt on Circles (Stage 1 - Black and White)

When I was creating the plate for the more "realistic" version of the stilt I decided to try and do a more abstract version  using the bird shape that I cut out of the background when creating the first "realistic" stilt.  (If you look at the background of the next stilt that I post you will know what I am talking about).  I recently acquired this circle texture and was anxious to try it out. Once I glued all my textures to the illustration board I inked up the plate with black ink, wiped it, placed a dampened piece of paper on top of the plate and ran it through the press.
