  1. Matt,

    I just want to tell you how much I've been enjoying your project. Some of these illustrations are nothing less than incredible! And every single one is edifying. As an ardent fan of Melville (and by extension, "Moby Dick") it's nice to see that his work can still inspire greatness in artists today. I look forward to each new drawing.

    I hope you'll consider selling some of these pieces. If so, keep me in mind.


  2. Thank you very much, J, I really appreciate the feedback and the compliments. "Moby-Dick" has indeed been a constant polestar for me for my entire life, but strangely it is only now that I have thought to apply any kind of artistic endeavor to it. So far, it has been a strange and wonderful journey.

    I may have some news about selling art in the first week or two of January, so stay tuned.
