MOBY-DICK, Page 064

Starting to get back on track here. Thanks to all for being understanding and for continuing to visit the blog.

Title: There was a fishy flavor to the milk, too, which I could not at all account for, till one morning happening to take a stroll along the beach among some fishermen's boats, I saw Hosea's brindled cow feeding on fish remnants, and marching along the sand with each foot in a cod's decapitated head, looking very slip-shod, I assure ye.

Hey Ponyboy, thank you very very much for the compliments. That kind of feedback really means a lot. I actually get asked this question a decent amount so I am going to write a "Questions People Ask Me" blog post with the detailed answer some time tomorrow (Friday, November 6) afternoon. Hopefully, all the answers will be contained in that post.

A very striking and unique interpretation of a cow as suggested by the text. Love it!

Thanks Brandon. I actually worked on this piece while making phone calls for the levt campaign. I have weirdly vivid memories of switching back and forth between the phone list and this drawing, calling and doodling.
