"A sketchbook is a secret thing, a collection of unfinished and often times abandoned ideas never intended for public consumption—at least not in their current state. It’s a private space for honing one’s craft and workshopping, separating good ideas from those best left unexplored." -Brian Heater at The Daily Cross Hatch.

Coastie or Navy?


I drew this from a photo of a joint VBSS team composed of Coast Guard and Navy personnel. The Navy guys are from the cruiser USS Chosin and the Coast Guard sailors are from the Maritime Safety and Security Team. (I have no idea which service the sailor driving the boat is in.) They're in the Gulf of Aden hunting pirates...truly an occupation as old as seaborne commerce.

  1. Wonderful depiction of a most demanding occupation, away from home and protecting commerce without hesitation or question, looking forward to your next!
