Artist's comment: His lifelong partner, Juta Ristsoo, wrote for Heiki Waher to ask about a DIY Mini Etching Press for him, as he had discovered it on Youtube. He is a multitalented artist who developed the character Horn Devil. Heiki plans to develop etchings as an auxiliary product with his comics at Comic Cons in the UK and Finland.
