The bowfin (amia calva) is a pure predator. When dinosaurs were stomping around, the bowfin lurked in the weeds. It’s remained pretty much unchanged since. I have yet to catch one, but when I do you can bet I’ll be keeping my fingers away from the teeth. I made this poster for fun after playing around with wordle and the text from some web articles about the bowfin. I went a little crazy with Photoshop, creating the clouds of blood in the water and the reflective water surface as seen from below. It was going to be simple, but it was so much fun that I couldn’t stop. In case there is interest from roughfishers out there, prints are for sale. Tell your friends.
Variations on another design for women who fish—this time fly fishing is the focus. Haven’t finished this one yet—these are just the first stab at it. I’ll give it a few days to ferment in my mind before deciding which (if any) of these I like best. I’ll also do it in various color combinations.
The new version of the carp design. The Shepard Fairey colors are OK, but pretty blah, so I made a new version that is a bit more exciting, visually speaking. It’s up on zazzle and cafe press on shirts, bags, stickers, etc.
Poster for fishing tournament I was asked to make this poster for a fishing tournament. It has no connection to Babe Winkelman (that’s why his name is misspelled). I had to recreate the entire page border, remove Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan and Illinois, and make the blown-up circle. The three postcards came from an antique store a few miles from the lake. It was printed at 11 x 14 inches.
