Some people have an obsession with catching the big one.

Nice color gradation, and I really like the curly lines in the water. Fish are such fun to draw. :D

Oh yes, I know a couple of those obsessive fisherfolk. Nice piece-- is that a linocut? The swirly water is great.

Actually, I used scratch-foam. It's really intended for children to use. The nice thing about it is that you can easily cut through it to make shaped designs.

ohhhhh. I had to zoom this one up. It is such a cool texture and look both near and far. Great take on the theme.

I really love this. I agree with everyone else's comments. Nothing wrong with using children's supplies :)

Love your illustration using this technique Vicki. I know someone who would be glad just to catch a fish - any fish!

Oh my oh my! This is lovely! The swirly white lines, texture, everything! Looks so fabric-y. Gorgeous.

As for my coffee, no, it's not a printmaking technique-- it was a filter in Photoshop. Sometimes I think my work is a little uptight, so with some experimenting I found under the Filter menu-- Artistic-- Cutout. (It works better with some images than others! Some just get covered up with the background color.)
