Red Herrings Swim In The Wood is an illustration to a relatively obscure nursery rhyme which goes like this: The man in the wilderness asked me, How many strawberries grow in the sea? I answered him as I thought good, As many as red herrings swim in the wood. Once I had the idea of red herrings swimming through a wood in my head, I couldn't resist turning it into a print which fully exploits the complimentary colours of green and red to really make the fish 'pop' out from the background. The result is probably my most surreal image.
