Original gyotaku print by Corinne Danzl

Artist's narrative: This original work of art was created using a real octopus. The paper I chose for this Gyotaku octopus rub is a soft, handmade, heavily wrinkled paper that was imported from Thailand. It's one of my favorite papers to work with. I absolutely love the texture of this paper and how easily it drapes over my subjects.
"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.
