Ralph has been very busy creating a new fish, a colorful Pencil Fish.  All those years of teaching the beginning design class at LTU and having students learn to use the basics using simple tools and not technology paid off.  He collected enough used pencils to create his new fish.

These fish are sure keeping him busy.  Can you tell what the body is made from?  Would you believe me if I told you a crutch!   Believe it or not they are hard to find I expensively when it comes to looking for them.

He wants to make one of his next fish from used paintbrushes.  Anyone have some laying around?  Any size, he has fun assembling everything.
