Fish, paper, pencil

Post Comment

I got this 50 million-year-old fossilized fish at the Evolution Store in SoHo as a present for my boyfriend. (It’s apparently genuine, and amazingly, it wasn’t that expensive… there were a lot of fish in the sea, I suppose, or in Wyoming, where it’s from.)

Anyway, the texture made me think it would be perfect for a pencil rubbing, so I got out my Rhodia pencil and some Clairefontaine DCP paper.

What a fun and simple thing! The details didn’t all come through, but you still get a pretty cool perspective on the fish. I may have to go to an art store and do another rubbing in charcoal…
