Thar She Blows: Another Peek At My Graphic Novel Manuscript
Rockwell Kent created for an elegant edition of Moby Dick. An artist with wanderlust, Kent actually spent some time in South Central Alaska. He lived for a period on Fox Island in what is now Kenai Fijords National Park. It's hard to imagine someone with a greater ability to strike the proper tone for Melville's novel than the rugged Kent, who would have felt right at home with the rigors of a whaling voyage. As it turns out, there is inspiration for those of us that have PD in Melville's book as well.
