I was blessed to live a childhood filled with real exploring, sailing and abundant storytelling.

This digital illustration is based on a sketch of mine. It is inspired by both real and imaginary adventures and treasure maps.

It is about the simple joy of being lost in a book; immersed in a storybook world created by words and imagination. 

This sketch has been sailing around my studio for months now. It was time to turn it into a full colour graphic illustrated print. It is blue, teal and sleepy.


I admire the patience and commitment of my parents, to read so many books out loud to me, in front of the open fire on the couch. While the particular details of the stories have faded, I still cherish the fiery spirit of adventure of the young at heart.
