Rock Cod


When you come to Newfoundland and go into a restaurant and order fish, it will always be Cod, unless specified other wise.

This image started out as just a black and white sketch, but I kept seeing the different elements that, to me are Newfoundland. for me, the title Rock Cod,  ays tribute to the fish but also our Island Home, but also marks as a reminder for a sweet older couple I spent some time with years ago.

We were taking part in the recreational fishery and one of them hauled up a small cod fish. The conversation that ensued was hilarious and was ohhh so them.

The entire dialogue was-

“Tis a rock cod” and then the response…

“Tisn’t a rock cod!!”

was repeated over and over with increased exaggeration, emphasis and fervor that tickled my funny bone and has stuck with me as a happy memory for years.

The Rock cod is a smaller version of the beloved Codfish. This one is a playful version that shows off some of the wonderful things Newfoundland is known for; The puffin, jellybean houses, ice bergs, lighthouse, tuckamores, pitcher plant, the NL flag and of course my three crows.
