  1. This does not show on a computer screen, but this piece (and all of the Folio whale pieces to follow) are double sized. That is, I am using an uncut piece of paper which is folded in half, so this piece measures close to 16 inches across. It was great fun to work oversized like this.

  2. Oh wow, this piece made me feel a little icky, haha.

    It's like I'm looking at his insides...

  3. That's actually an awesome compliment, Crysti! Sometimes it's hard for me to mentally separate the generic sperm whales from Moby-Dick, so I think that they all take on some of his savagery and fury. Very visceral.
