While at a FiberVoices meeting last week, my friend Susan gave us a little impromptu workshop on Gyotaku fish printing. Here is the result of my first (and, so far, only) fish print. He's not perfect (he seems to have a double-chin), but I love him anyway. Thank you, Susan!

No, we didn't use real fish! You can buy rubber fish (cast from real fish) and other critters from Dick Blick Art Supply, as well as other places, I'm sure.
