ROCKFISH & KELP GREENLING ORIGINAL GYOTAKU
Original gyotaku print by Corinne Danzl
Image size: 31" x 22"
Artist's narrative: This is an original Gyotaku fish rub of a black rockfish, also known as a black sea bass, and a kelp greenling. Both of these fish were caught in Resurrection Bay, in Seward, Alaska, by my husband Keith.
When I first started creating Gyotaku images, of the fish my husband and I caught, painting in the eyes terrified me. I had always been artistic but I had never painted. I was afraid messing up the eyes and ruining a good Gyotaku rub. Now painting in the eyes is my favorite part of this whole process! I love how the eyes give "life" to my fish.

"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.
