Matt Shanks: Small adventures in words and pictures

Captain Ahab

“He’s a grand, ungodly, god-like man, Captain Ahab; doesn’t speak much; but, when he does speak, then you may well listen. Mark ye, be forewarned; Ahab’s above the common; Ahab’s been in colleges, as well as ‘mong the cannibals; been used to deeper wonders than the waves; fixed his fiery lance in mightier, stranger foes than whales.”
– Herman Melville

Artist notes: When I was growing up, Dad would make me watch repeats of 2 movies. Moby Dick was one of these movies, the other one was Zulu. In fact, you could say that Gregory Peck was my second dad.
