my introduction to Fred B. Mullett.....

today i had the honor of interviewing artist and rubber stamp designer Fred B. Mullett.  yes that is his real name.  he started his rubber stamp business back in the late 1990's and has never looked back.  most his images are produced through an ancient art form called gyotaku --- or fish rubbings.  he has many interesting techniques.  see his site www.fredbmullett.com.  i will be submitting this article to somerset magazine next week.

jean i'm sure you know how to do it - but i think the fish are suppose to be frozen when you ink them.
this piece was done by bleaching a fish shape on black paper, then tinting with watercolors. finally details using gel pens.
