Helm to Starboard

 

I started working on something new today, cutting, painting and pasting scraps of paper and cardboard. Hello, uncharted waters, you're making for some rather entertaining sailing.

Also, a sketch to end the day, pulled from the "My Daguerreotype Boyfriend" tumblr. It's a great source of photo reference and obscure 19th century hilarity. And despite the ennui-laced expression, you got to admit, all those cords and tassels are pretty boss.

Just bought the Melancholic Mermaid for my daughters... well, for me actually. They'll have to ask to look at it. :) Love your work!
