The ripple watchers
Based on a sketch from a previous post, I was convinced that this MC Escher-style positive-negative trick could improve and that a linocut could be the perfect medium. Also not giving the game away entirely with the name was a good move, so I came up with a less literal title. See http://petergander.blogspot.com/2009/09/fishermens-thoughts-090908.html for the original idea. The fish shape has been simplified down to its bare essentials now it's in negative. Linocut with water-based ink on newsprint, (artist's proof).
