In the 17th century, there is a story in the high seas, where many a sailor’s life was swept away, not by the hurricanes and white squalls of the angry oceans, but rather, by a great sea creature, known as the Giant Octopus.

As night falls, the monster’s tentacles slithers aboard the Buccaneer, capturing every sailor, one by one, as a scrumptious morsel. Even the courageous captain defends his honor, with scimitar in hand, only to go down with his ship.

This is an updated version 2 of my illustration.

drawing: blue whale

January 7, 2011


In the ocean hall of the American Museum of Natural History, hangs a life-sized replica of the largest animal on Earth, the Blue Whale.

The is definitely the grandest still-life I had ever drawn. It was extra special to do because groups of school kids would pass behind me and comment. They were amused by my sketching of the enormous subject.

This is my first post of 2011. Happy New Year, everybody!
