I was at this art festival in Kentucky yesterday. Amongst a bunch of artists was this dude in a booth who makes Gyotaku Fish Rubbings. Really nice guy and quite a fisherman. Basically when he catches a fish he paints one side of it and then rubs it on this handmade paper to create a print. There was some really cool stuff there if you want to check it out. He's got a website...
