This is very cool, very active and engaging; I love that the boat is tilting with the wind and wave. Nice.

Hi Elli,

After having just watched the last instalment of the Pirates of the Carribean, I am seeing your illo in a whole new light – “Maelstrom!” at it’s very best.

Hope you’re enjoying the weekend,

Wow, what a fantastic illustration! So full of detail and such a great technique, the composition, everything. It makes you feel like you’re right there, moving with the ocean!
