I'll start with my contribution to the EIM. I had a whale of a good time finding information about cetaceans, the big mammals of the sea.
First up, the biblical account of Jonah and the Whale, a detail from the illustration by Everett Henry titled, "The Voyage of the Pequod," for the story, "Moby Dick," also known as just, "The Whale," by Herman Melville, the tail end of a whale and an image of a breaching whale.
Did you see the story of the whale they call "Granny" in the news this week?
Life can be funny that way, don't you think?
Ah, whale tales all! You can call me Ishmael.
Moving right along....
Next I tackled the TwobyTwo. The first two drawings are kind of self-explanatory.
This one requires a bit of back-story. I was in Sedona one day a while back and stopped by Garlands, a gallery for exceptional Native American jewelry, ceramics and weavings. I saw a beautiful Tree of Life (Bird Pictorial) wall hanging depicting hummingbirds and metallic yarns were used to make those lovely birds shimmer. I knew then that it would haunt me forever that I didn't buy the unusual piece (Navajo like to use only wool from the sheep they raise themselves. Metallic threads are unheard of), but the tag had more zeroes than I had.
So here I've attempted to draw a hummingbird that doesn't look like the Twitter thing:
I dream of hummingbirds, which I guess is a good thing.
Before I let you go, I'll share the Diva challenge piece for the week.
That's it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a brilliant day!
