Wreck of the Halifax


I drew this in a Moleskine while waiting to be picked at jury duty. I used a Pentel mechanical pencil and Faber-Castell Pitt Pens. This piece is totally off the dome, so it’s not based on any real ship or wreck, and the name “Halifax” is probably already used somewhere else, but I am happy with how it turned out.

Flying Dutchmen

I’ve been fascinated with the tales of The Flying Dutchman, a ghost ship never allowed to return to port. It may have been based on reflections on the ocean’s surface making ships in the distance appear to float several feet off of the surface.
