MOBY-DICK, Page 436

Title: The skeleton dimensions I shall now proceed to set down are copied verbatim from my right arm, where I had them tattooed; as in my wild wanderings at that period, there was no other secure way of preserving such valuable statistics.

  2. Thank you Titus. Oddly enough, this piece began as some lunchtime sketching with a ballpoint pen, while at my desk. As I worked the lines round and round, slowly defining the hands to see if that approach would work, I started to like what I saw. In the end, I finished the "sketch" and that became the final piece you see here.
