Original gyotaku print on marble earthquake paper by Corinne Danzl

Artist's narrative: "Earthquake" is the color of this hand patterned, marble metallic (I use the backside) paper made in Thailand. I absolutely love this color! I had another black rockfish on this gorgeous paper but it is no longer available. This is the last one, on this paper, for a while. At least until next summer when I'll once again have the opportunity to go out deep sea fishing in Resurrection Bay.
"Gyotaku" is a traditional Japanese ink-printing method used by Japanese fishermen to document their catch.
Each Ink Goes Wild Alaska Gyotaku fish rub is an ink rubbing of an actual fish which was caught by Corinne or her husband Keith in Resurrection Bay. They call Seward, which is nestled between majestic mountain peaks on one side and Resurrection Bay on the other, on south-central Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, their home.
