After building the last project, i went on to build this boat, inspired by some of the boat prints that i've done. This boat was basically built with no reference, and i just built upon pieces of wood that i had put down before. Also this project isnt quite done as i wanted to silk screen sails with different stages of a storm within them, but i went ahead and submitted it in to the gallery. The size of the boat is about 3-4 feet in height, and about 5 feet long, 2 feet wide.

It's kinda nice to make an image, then to try and make it 3-dimensional.. It comes with its own set of huge challenges but I personally think its well worth it. Hope you guys like.

Jon, now you built a boat? And with no reference. You're just a creative genius! Very impressive project. I like that you decided to have it suspended in the air.

Hey John, I was meaning to call you. George M was trying to track you down for some freelance because of that project you've worked on with him. Well, it seems as though it's really taking off and he wanted you to do more. E-mail me off-line and I'll forward his info to you if you are interested.

keep up the excellent work.

Holy crap! I echo the sentiments of the people above. The ship is very skeletal, yet warm. Beautiful!

I like what the shadow adds to it. Like it refers back to the two dimensional prints.
