Viking themes

Tuesday, 18 August 2015

Here's a drawing I made of the figurehead of the Dawn Treader in C.S. Lewis' book about her Voyage. From memory. That's the power of illustration, especially when it connects to a ready fascination: in my case, Norse Wonder Tales. I don't remember the boat herself but definitely the shape is no longship but squat and tubby like the Mary Rose or - was it the Pinto? - some poop-decked midget, anyway. The reason I did it is that I'm wondering if something in this style would be good as one of the ink sketches. What do you think?
