FlounderFor those who follow my blog or website, you’ll know there are often fish and aquatic themed pieces that I produce. This year, I’m still on that same page, but have decided to offer a range of relief prints of fish found in local waters. I will produce a new print each month which will be available as an unlimited edition, 4” x 6” in size. These will be printed on a variety of papers, Japanese, printmaking papers and handmade papers. The choice of paper is mine and a surprise for you.

The prints will be available for purchase through my website and all will be the same price of $22.00 each, including shipping. Collect all twelve in the series and frame them together or individually.
The first print proof in progress shows the transparency of the Japanese paper used for this printing as the cut block becomes clearer.
The January Fishy Bits is a flounder. I love these fish for gyotaku as they’re so….well flat! They look a bit like Mick Jagger with their amusing pout and their skin is like sandpaper. This image is based on a winter flounder that sits in my freezer, waiting for his debut in various forms.
