The Fishy Friday Project comes to an end

16 January 2015, 4:01 pm

Over the past year I set myself a challenge entitled the 'Fishy Friday Project'. Fish often feature in large section of my work as I am fascinated by the sheer amount of different types, shapes and sizes there are swimming around in the seas. My aim was to create a book which would feature all of them and I am currently compiling this at present. I will keep you all posted when I finally complete it as there were rather a lot in the end! It was a fun project to do and I set up a Facebook page which features a lot of them which you can see here at Kate Jenkins 'Fishy Friday Project'

So here is the final Fishy Friday ...  the film poster for Jaws
