ELECTRIC KNIFE FISH
Electric knifefish (Gymnotiforms) are an amazing group of blade-shaped fish that emit electrical signals used primarily for locating objects. The distinct electrical fields each species produce also act as a kind of signature helping one fish find another in murky water. I threw in a Swiss Army knife and an electrical cord to help fill out the composition.

THE MAGIC CATFISH
Ray Troll’s fine artwork printed with high quality, lightfast inks on heavyweight acid-free paper. Each art poster is individually signed by Ray.
A magical moment along the Amazon river from the mythology of my minds eye. That’s an armored catfish hovering in the evening sky. Just what is it he’s trying to tell the villagers?

Convergence by Ray Troll
CONVERGENCE
I'm amazed at the similarity between the armored catfish portrayed here and the modern airplane, the F-117 Stealth fighter. Form following function, and the ancient/modern duality of design. Biologists have noticed a pattern that happens in evolution where different organisms with similar lifestyles evolve into similar or "convergent" body shapes.
