Laptop art, perfect for binge watching Wicked Tuna
Often, I am busy on my laptop designing digital frames whenever I watch Wicked Tuna on the National Geographic channel. If I end up with something to show at the end of the program, I justify the bucket of time I dumped watching TV.
After I completed my first pixel art of The Scream, Edvard Munch’s iconic masterpiece, I thought it needed a frame. So, I made a frame for it while I watched Wicked Tuna, and I recolored my Scream from Munch’s classic palette to my favorite Jelly Bean palette of colors.
I’ve asked myself, Why do I binge-watch Wicked Tuna?
What is it about Wicked Tuna that I find myself binge watching fishermen catching bluefin tuna in the Atlantic until their eyes dilate from lack of sleep? Is it the suspense waiting for a tuna to bite or holding my breath while the fishermen land the fish. It’s an epic tale until that tuna is landed and turned into a paycheck for Sushi and the Japanese marketplace.
Will that tuna make good Sushi? Does it have a clear core and does it have good fat in the majors and minors. I’m spellbound for an hour to see which boat catches the most fish and how much they get paid for their fish because that determines which boat is ahead on the dollar scoreboard at the end of each week.
Wicked Tuna equals ocean waves, boats, and fish
Like any good movie, book, or adventure, it’s all about the setting, and Wicked Tuna is set on fishing boats in the Atlantic. No wonder I am mesmerized watching ocean waves and beautiful sunsets and sunny skies, all aboard a boat. What’s not to love?
