Fishy Fun

Fishy Fun, originally uploaded by diahn.

For some reason, ever since Linda and I had our meeting and I teased her about the fishy sketchbook, I've had fish on the brains. I even cooked fish the other night. Sheesh.

Anyhow - on the left is a leafy (or is it weedy) sea dragon on 140lb wc paper in my large Moleskine sketchbook. I used gouache to absolutely no effect here. It can't always be gorgeous, you know.

On the right is another block I carved from a koi sketch, then colored with aquacolor. The flowers are from some decorative papers I found lying around the office when I was cleaning out the other day.

glub. gurgle. glermph.

That's real fish talk.

No lie.
