Artist's narrative: This is an original Gyotaku rub of an octopus. The paper is a soft, heavily wrinkled, handmade paper from Thailand.
"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.
