Charles W Morgan Sea Trials in New London

June 11th I went to New London with Dalvero Academy to draw the sea trials of the Charles W Morgan, the last remaining wooden whaling ship in the world. This summer we will be following the Morgan on her historic 38th voyage, where she will be sailing to her old ports of call along the coast of New England. The journey is a great way to talk about the history of whaling and the future of whale conservation. The project will be culminating in a show with work by myself and other Dalvero artists at Mystic Seaport's Museum of America and the Sea in 2015 (Specific date TBA!) Here are some drawings I made in New London.
