CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A black and white cartoon-like image of a whistling man walking laden with fishing gear. A variety of patterns are used to create texture within the image; his shirt is checkered, his satchel is covered in wavy lines, and his fishing net and boot interiors are crosshatched. He is wearing a brimmed hat with fishing lures and carries a long rod over his shoulder in the left side of the image. A bottle is in his right shirt pocket and another is alongside the right hip. The background is blank.
