Go Gomuban!

My preferred etching substrate is copper, but I was willing give Gomuban relief printing plates a go (thanks, Deb!).  The challenge was to design an image featuring water creatures.  I found that the plate was soft and easy to carve.  After applying burnt umber Akua ink, I used a baren to pull the prints by hand.  If my imaginary fish looks friendly, my work here is done.
