lesson in fish anatomy
There are two main types of fish: cartilaginous fish and bony fish. This pinfish is a bony fish. Sharks & rays, by contrast, are cartilaginous fish.
Image of fish was made by coloring a rubber stamp with markers, then stamping it on white paper. This rubber stamp was made by Fred B. Mullett, who sells an extraordinary number of highly realistic images of ocean creatures & plants, all printed with the Japanese gyotaku technique. Fred says his cats are the best-fed in the country, because he uses nontoxic inks and gives all his leftover fish to his cats.
