As strange as it may sound, I have found myself being haunted by Moby Dick the last few days. Example: auto correct on my phone is turning "whatever" into "wharves." ... and so I found myself at my drawing table trying my hand at the mad captain himself.
This is the first sketch. Warming up. Experimenting with shapes and themes. I call it Ahab's Ghost.
My respect paid to Rockwell Kent's 1930's edition'sillustrations (a trade of which sits on my shelves).
