The Grand Armada

The Grand Armada. Top, from left to right: Lovecraft, Krampus, Bor Gullet. Middle, from left to right: Corinth, Worf, Merian. Bottom, from left to right: Hestia, Ogygia, Miercoles.

The past few months have seen me working on new “larger” Inktopodes, members of the Grand Armada. These pieces of original artwork are watercolor ink, India ink, gouache, and pigment-based iridescent calligraphy ink on 8″ x 10″ watercolor paper.

“Every strange, half-seen, gliding, beautiful thing that eludes him; every dimly-discovered, uprising fin of some undiscernible form, seems to him the embodiment of those elusive thoughts that only people the soul by continually flitting through it.”
—“The Mast-Head,” chapter 35 of Moby-Dick by Herman Melville
