Fishing was an integral part of my childhood. I’d cast along the shore while floating in my uncle’s fishing boat. I lost tackle during these excursions, but he never gave it much consideration. I’d tie another line and keep casting. Eventually, I learned that water keeps everything. Those lost bobbers are out there somewhere. I used Maine’s own Cassie – The Casco Bay Sea Serpent to illustrate the perils of plastic that’s left behind.
This original artwork was designed, carved, and printed by Lyell Castonguay. Ink is applied to a carved wooden block and hand-pressed onto Strathmore 300 Series Paper. Multiple carved blocks layer colors, resulting in a dramatic effect. The artwork is signed, titled, and numbered in pencil by the artist.
