Returning Home

If all goes as planned the Charles W. Morgan will return home next Wednesday after her 38th and most likely last voyage. Sailing into Mystic will mark an amazing moment. History has been forever changed. I am very fortunate to have been a small part of marking the past few years down in her honor.—Dominick

Whale of Boat

I made this drawing while on a ferry that was circling around the Morgan as she was on one of her first trial runs after being restored. The last wooden whaling ship in the U.S. is really a big deal in New England. And for the whole world too! Her 38th voyage will be dedicated […]

Another drawing from the Morgan‘s test run two weeks ago. Having seen her without her rigging for a few years as she was being restored, the art and the science of the sails and rigging was that much more profound. Hard to imagine how someone came up with the set up. She is bound for […]

I haven’t been able to look at trash/debris the same way since we scoured the beach after the workshop looking for ocean debris. It comes in many shapes and forms […]

Whale Coil

Just last week, the Dalvero Academy show at Mystic Seaport, Restoring a Past, Charting a Future, came down. Above is one of a series of knot drawings I made that didn’t make the show. It’s a “whale coil” – the certain way a line needs to be coiled so that when the whale shows up […]

Whale Song Drawings

I listened to some recordings of whale songs and made this drawings while I was listening to them. The whale songs are beautiful and soulful. I used these whale song drawings in my art for the Dalveromystic Exhibit which will be opening at Mystic Seaport on April 28, 2012, at Mystic, Connecticut. The exhibit is […]
