Who says fishing boats don’t fly?

I recently ran a competition over on Instagram to win an illustration commission from me. I had over 150 entries – a lot more than I expected, and there were some fantastic suggestions of things for me to draw. The winner was Joseph Travis who asked if I could draw a steam powered fishing boat. How could I resist. Joseph didn’t mention if he wanted his fishing boat to be flying – but that’s what he got (hope he likes it).

Here’s the process, from sketch to final inked illustration.


Final, finished, illustration.
