First I made a leafy sea dragon and then I had to make a weedy too!! There is one species left that I haven’t captured in a woodcut, the Ruby. Maybe I’ll make that one too...
I made this piece after hearing about sea dragons very beautiful mating dance. They need a lot of vertical space (don’t quote me but the info I found said 13’ would love to make a 13’ woodcut of this!) to move up and down the water column. In captivity they are extremely hard to breed. Males have a brood pouch on their tail, the sea dragons are “born” there and then go off on their own as tiny amazing looking little babies. Most of them are eaten up but if they do make it to adulthood they turn into the most splendid creatures with decorative fins that look like seaweed. They have tiny pectoral fins that move at lighting speed, and that is the only way they are able to move around the ocean.
If you can’t tell, I am completely enamored by these fish and hope you are too :) #seadragon #weedyseadragon #woodcut #printmakingprocess #blockprint #inprogress #artmaking #modernmaker #oceanic
