It was a total pleasure working on this very special commission. Not only is it an awesome story, but it also happens that the person who requested this piece is a very talented photographer, Presley Wright. Together, we were able to come up with the perfect way to commemorate this journey in time for Father's Day.
As a family, Presley, her parents, and her brother sailed their boat from Alaska down the west coast of North and Central America, through the Panama Canal and up to Key West. I had the most gorgeous photographs to work from- Whales, Seals, Bald Eagles, Bears, oh my! The final product was one chart of Alaska with a bald eagle, bear, orca and their boat against the cliffs. The other chart was of North, Central and South America and included a sail fish that they caught on their journey, a whale shark, grouper and mother and child humpback whales.
