A thousand fish walk into a bar

The fish tank sections of pet stores are so crazy.  There are so many little fish just swimming in circles, looking for fingers to follow.

I’m really trying to find ways to add writing to my art.  It’s a skill that I want to develop, not forget.

Someone once told me that the text distracts from the art.  I took that critique too literally or reacted to the extreme, because I went wordless for almost a year.  I know I want to add words.  I just need to figure out what works.  Here are some attempts.

Oh!  And as far as the title of this post, I layered the fish photos beneath a drawing I did of the Travis King Band playing at King Neptunes.  King Neptunes also happens to be an underwater themed bar/venue with fish tanks.
