No Frigate Like a Book

A slightly different kind of post!

One of my friends is reading a book a week for a year. To motivate himself, he has joined the many bloggers who review their reads and their experiences, while completing this challenge.

A couple of weeks ago I volunteered to draw him a header image for his blog, entitled ‘No Frigate Like a Book‘.

As you can see I’ve done something which has been inspired by the theme invoked by this Emily Dickinson quote (after some book-shaped boat disasters!).

This is quite a different sort of drawing from the kind of thing I usually do, given that it was largely imagined (a couple of boat pictures did help!) but it was quite pleasant to draw an idea rather than document something from real life for a bit of a change!
