Announcement    In the mid 1800's Japanese fishermen began rubbing rice paper on inked fish to prove the size of their catch. Function evolved into form and an art form was born. Today Gyotaku is celebrated globally, and I'm proud to represent various fish of the southeastern U.S. I print my own fish as well as those of others by commission. It's like taxidermy where you can still eat your catch! Check out themightybluegill.com for more info and other prints.

The soul that beholds Beauty becomes beautiful. (Plotinus, paraphrase) I hope that you will find something to admire here in my fish print gallery. What I find most intriguing is the subjectivity of what appeals to people in fish variations. Eye color, paper/cloth texture, position of the fish, etc. all affect people in different ways, and what one person finds as "the best print" might strike another as uninteresting. Please look around and feel free to share your thoughts over on our facebook page, The Mighty Bluegill.

Returns and exchanges
I'm happy to refund the cost of the print and receive it back if there are any problems.
Payment
Promptness is appreciated, and I try to also be prompt in communication as well as shipping. Thanks!
Shipping
Framed prints are expensive to ship because of the required materials to pack and then the more expensive shipping that follows. If you'd like to by the print only without the frame, that reduces the shipping by 50% and the cost of the print by 25%.
