Celebrate with me by sending me your favourite ocean-themed quote and I will illustrate my three favourites and mail them to you as postcards!
To motivate myself to start sketching regularly, I bought myself this new pen with a soft tip. Which I am still getting used to, as you can see. But I’m having fun! :-)
I have always loved the poem “Sea Fever” by John Masefield: (although it is a bit long for a quote) :-)
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.
Oh I love it, too! Thank you! :-)
