Traveling in search of surf eventually led me to Hawai'i which exposed me to the Asian influenced art of Gyotaku, Japanese for "fish rubbing". Always intrigued by Asian culture, I admire old time Japanese artists and their print making techniques. As an avid fisherman, Gyotaku seemed like a natural transition, and an inspiration to record an event, much like one of my seascape paintings. Gyotaku's roots stem from the days of pre-taxidermy, but much like todays fisherman, they wanted to brag about their prized catch.

Unlike traditional methods, I wanted to apply my painterly technique to create a piece of art, not just a documentation. All the fish in my prints are caught by yours truly, and marked with a kanji stamp meaning "Ocean, Love ,Respect" because the ocean is our precious resource and it deserves such.
