Steven Warrick lives in Richmond, Virginia, and he is a truly creative and fantastic artist. He does design, original drawings, comics, and more, and we were lucky enough to get our hands on a series of interesting pieces to show you, and to talk to him about what in the wide world made him think of putting fish heads on barnyard animals. He’s a buddy of mine, so I just asked him. He flung a radish at the wall, turned to me and said:
The whole putting fish heads on farm animals thing was kind of spur of the moment because I needed an idea right then. I was trying to come up with a way to use a routing machine at work to carve out woodblock prints, and I needed to think of a fast illustration to create a cut file with. Something ridiculous and nonsensical like a rooster with a fish head. I’d call it a fooster or a fock, depending on how you wanna pronounce it. I prefer to scream “FOCK!” at people when they ask what it is.
