Holstein Fish



Although popular among fad diets of the day, fish milk never really caught on. The low yield of each fish and difficulty in milking them underwater made them unpopular on fish farms, and diners complained that the stuff "just kinda tasted like old shrimp."

A technical experiment with my current obsession, ryunkin goldfish. This is 12 x 6 on artist panel board, and while it came out okay, the texture of the board isn't much fun to work with compared to some of the other varieties of board. May have to try another fish piece with illustration board...I like all the negative spaces you can get with their fins, but the whites aren't as pure as you can get on illo board.

Original is for sale, prints available! Visit Red Wombat Studio to order: [link]

I suppose this fish milk would work pretty well in a seafood casserole :P
