The Tiger (version 1)

And here's the finished thing. It's a good job I did a test, because the colours are all wrong. Retrospectively I should have realised before ever putting needle to aida that using the pale pinks for the three most common letters wasn't a good idea. I'll be trying again, again with the tiger, with slightly more sophisticated methods of colour selection. It fits rather well do to another version of The Tiger (and actually, I have a final piece of aida left of just the right size, so I might even do a third version) since each printed version Blake produced would have subtle and deliberate differences in illustration, colouring, etc. I'm just following his lead.
