This is a lino block print of an anglerfish in white and blue ink on Japanese teal unryu paper, 7.35 inches by 15.5 inches (18.4 cm by 39.4 cm). It is one of a hand-pulled edition of 6.

The Mad Scientists of Etsy theme for June is Ichthyology, the study of fish. Anglerfish are spectacularly ugly fish of the order Lophiiformes who use a fleshy growth from their heads as a lure to fish their prey. This one is a bottom-dwelling (benthic) predator with a glowing bioluminescent lure (the esca or illicium).

They really look like that. I couldn't make this up if I tried.
