Evan B. Harris, Whales, and All Things Nautical

As some of you know, I've recently become fascinated with whales and all things nautical. I'm currently working on a nautical illustration of a sperm whale and I promise to share that as soon as I'm done. Josh treated me to this beauty as a Valentines day gift and I must say it really is more lovely in person!

I discovered the works of Mr. Evan B. Harris a while ago and was instantly smitten. I quickly added his website to my favorites folder as not to forget about him but alas, forgotten he became. Until a few days ago that is. Evan's work is really beautiful and has a haunting old-timey folk appeal. The line work is exquisitely graceful and his color palette is so dreamy. A lot of his work depicts sea life in some form or another and that's exactly what's won my heart.
