For those in peril on the sea…

trouble-largeThis is my first ‘Illustration Friday’ in a very long time. It’s such a good website and perfect when you just want a quick fix of illustration activity. The word ‘Trouble’ isn’t particularly easy and my first thoughts were of troubled sailors out at sea and the waves themselves being like monsters swallowing up the boats. I’m currently reading Moby Dick, so it’s not a surprise that my mind went there. As well as some very long sentences, the book is stuffed full of poignancy  – “Ship and boat diverged; the cold damp night breeze blew between; a screaming gull flew overhead; the two hulls wildly rolled; we gave three heavy-hearted cheers and blindly plunged like fate into the lone Atlantic”
