Derek Hess is an avid fisherman and loves to bring that into his work when he can, something less heavy and more fun then his usual images. 1xRUN is releasing his newest print One Fish, Two Fish, B-24 Fish, Raw Sienna Fish
"These are all Dr. Seuss fish mixed with the B-24 Liberator. They all have different markings from different theaters of the war they were based in.This print and 8 originals will be on sale at NOON EDT on Friday at 1xRUN.com
Overall this is a continuing series of my fish morphed with World War II aircrafts. All of the fish are native North American species, except for the Dr. Seuss fish, which I am assuming are American as well.
Since this release is close to D-Day, many of the fish are marked with D-Day invasion stripes. The allies had all of their planes marked black and white so there would be less confusion during the landing.
Some of the adversaries in these pieces are my standard goldfish crackers, marked with either German or Japanese insignias." - Derek Hess
