Gyotaku


In my Dynamic Sketching class we tried Gyotaku or the art of Japanese fish printing. We simply rolled ink on the dead fish our T.A., Chris Grun, bought from the fish market that morning, and pressed rice paper over the top. I believe it was a halibut, rock cod, red snapper, and I forget what the one on the bottom right is.

Dynamic Sketching? With Norm? That will be really cool if it was haha no more draw through yay! Very cool fishies! You should try to touch them up in photoshop and make strange designs out of them.
