Last summer, I made some scientific drawings of the juvenile fish we find in our shallows. Russel Barsh, the charismatic scientist who inspired our citizen science group, gave a talk on what juvenile salmon eat (mostly herring) based on our findings. While the field guide isn't ready for publication yet, he did ask me to show some of the drawings. Instead, I made Japanese-style scrolls.
I love the way sculpins are mostly mouth. The fabric is from a linen blouse I once loved, and the borders are kimono fabric scraps I bought at a street fair in Tokyo.
