It is very strange to enter a ‘fish special’ restaurant and order some veggie preparation. Being a vegetarian I do strange things like this. People stare and people question, not by words in literal but a virtual debate starts all over again. Veg versus non-veg! Living in front of a fish market, with neighbors cooking fish day-night and fish-eatarian friends all around, I do manage to keep a lot much interest in fish. Which fish grabbed my attention first to design? It is the ‘filet-o-fish’ from Mc Donald’s. Acknowledgments to the burger! I have a bed linen of fish patterns, a t-shirt with a fishy message, fish key ring and fish even as a block print. Some woven fish are missing though. Too fishy, is it?! But yes I think fish is a very cliché subject for patterns. Fish are not like flowers; the ever alive ones in patterns and textiles.
