Made for a Phish loving lady. I began first with her love of the band and it's psychedilic vibes. Then I researched different rainbow fish and created my own species inspired by these images. At several moments in the creation I had to rip out my stitches because I was not satisfied by the color schemes. I decided that if my whole scene was rainbow colored, that my fish did not have to be. During the creation, a coworker sneered at my piece and called it "vile" because of my text and seaweed. I realized that my work as a provacateur was necessary even in more liberal, artistic environments.
