Whale…Sperm Whale

leave a comment »

I’ve been obsessed with Sperm Whales during the last couple of months. Not sure what happened, but I intend to explore this obsession completely with renderings, illustrations, woodblock carvings…and some painting. I also intend to print some t-shirts with said animal…and perhaps some that mention the Essex (whaleship that went down in 1820). This true story (and book) unfolded into a very strange disaster and perilous fight to ensure self preservation…hungry anyone?

tidbit: Essex tragedy inspired the classic Moby Dick.

follow me.
