for large view
San Francisco based artist Jeremy Fish uses a recurring cast of characters to tell tall tales through his finely rendered paintings and illustrations. A bunny, the sea captain, the fish creatures, the winged skull and others recur in various combinations of fins, hands, wings and peg legs like a zoological fantasia with a surreal narrative.
