Eat Me

hand-lettering | hand-painted

I found this sad, battered fish mount while antiquing and knew he had something to say. I juxtaposed his tattered and shabby qualities with a dainty and elegant, script lettering to create something that is both nasty and nice. Eat Me, painted in a bright, artificial yellow, denotes the current state of our fisheries and aquatic resources. We can paint a pretty picture on the overfishing and destruction of the ecosystems in our oceans, but ultimately they are in a state similar to the battered fish I found while antiquing.
