About the original print

This was a 32 inch Roosterfish caught accidentally on a gill-net in the Pacific Costa Rican shore. Printed over rice paper using the traditional Gyotaku direct method. In this case, I decided to add some color to this beautiful fish, sometimes silver, sometimes greenish colours. Also I left some space in front of him waiting to get some Ballyhoos that I added weeks later in order to create this scene.

Inhabiting coastal waters along the Pacific, this species is sought after for its impressive size and spirited fight, making it a prized catch among sportfishermen. Roosterfish exhibit an elusive nature, often found near rocky shores or sandy beaches, preying on smaller fish and crustaceans. Their striking appearance and remarkable behavior make them a fascination in both sportfishing and marine biology circles.
