As a guest artist at the University of  Austin, Texas, Nutt created this lithograph together with another one titled Tussel. By drawing the outlines of the faces, he first realised Tip. After twenty proofs were pulled, he reworked the stone, adding details and patterns to realise Tussel.

"Solid and commanding in spite of her simple linear form and surreal characteristics, Tip holds the viewer’s attention with her captivating gaze and powerful face" (Wendy Weitman)
