We're all in this together-make your own fish and shell prints at home with my free virtual classes!

Dear Fished Impressions and Joe's Fresh Fish Prints community - i wish you great health and less stress during these times and I'll do whatever i can to help keep you busy and entertained. If you are looking for something to do I am offering free live fish print classes every Friday at 11am on my Fished Impressions facebook page-- I hope to print a different fish, shell, crab, lobster each week and give you tips on how to make your own prints that can be passed on for generations. Just sit back and learn - the video will remain on my facebook page if you aren't able to watch it live.
The link to my facebook page is facebook.com/fishedimpressions.
In addition I've also put "virtual" fish print classes and fish print kits on my website and am offering 20% off pretty much everything.  The link to my shop is fishedimpressions.com

In addition to the above I've done the following:  
• I've closed all my brick and mortar galleries to the general public since February 28th, to keep my family and your safe- 
• All prints, and products are in a contained environment but are also given a final wipe down before shipping out. And if you need some TP i ll try to include that too:)
•We are  offering curbside and free delivery in immediate area. 
If you’re looking for more ways to protect yourself and your loved ones, check out the CDC website.
Thank you so much for sticking with us. We look forward to supporting each other during these challenging times.

Jarrod Clowery and the Norden brothers - Boston Marathon victims funds

The Boston Marathon bombings is a tragedy that has affected everyone who claims Boston as their home. If they weren't affected directly it seems everyone knows somebody knows somebody who was killed, hurt or maimed. As the smoke cleared great stories of heroism emerged, and are still emerging- most from the hospitals and the rehab facilities- from the victims themselves. They inspire they believe there is more good than bad coming out of all this. The American flag tuna tail print was inspired by those stories. I had made the tuna tail print a while ago but never marketed it- i decided to use it for some good and thought there was a nice connection between that and a couple of the victims being fans of the Wicked Tuna show.   Prints were given to two of the victims and were brought by the crew of F/V Tuna.com and they were also visited my the crew of Hard Merchandise. the majority of the funds raided from my prints will go to them.

You can see more of their stories here.

 If you haven't been to Salem in October before you are in for an experience. I've considered changing the name of my shop to "Joe's House of Horrified Fish" for the month of October, or perhaps printing some headless fish with the blood of bluefish and the ink of a squid.  The shop is open Wed-Sunday 10-5 generally but will remain open longer on Friday and Saturday night.  So come and visit us - the scariest thing is finding a parking spot.
