About this piece:
The Firefly Squid, Watasenia scintillans, literally glows like a cluster of fireflies. Its mantle is dotted with tiny, light-producing photophores that can be flashed to attract prey. Each year in Toyama Bay, Japan, millions of firefly squid create constellations of light as they fly through the water during their mating season.

This 3 color screenprint uses seemingly glowing fluorescent blue and magenta ink to simulate the firefly squid’s unique glowing abilities.
Printed in Oakland, California by Forthrite Printing.
