Sketchbook doodles on the theme of MOBY DICK. Methinks Ishmael sounds a bit depressed. Maybe he will perk up when he gets out to sea? One can hope…

 

 

DRAW: MOBY DICK FOR 2012!

Taking on the Whale for 2012 | rough sketch in journal | copyright 2011 Ellen Ward, all rights reserved.

A great friend gifted me with a copy of Moby Dick! We are both going to take on the whale for 2012. We will be reading in small chunks, since the book is big enough to use as a weapon! The tale is supposed to encompass all the big themes of literature and life, so no doubt my rough sketches will filter the whale for much of 2012. This is not a New Year’s resolution, but it is a planned journey.
