I think it’s time I start uploading my thesis project. It’s titled “The Monomoy Disaster” after the events it’s inspired by. The project is a series of illustrations inspired by the story of a crew of US Lifesavers, or surf men, giving their lives in an attempted rescue off the most precarious coast on Cape Cod, Monomoy Point. I recommend reading up on the US Lifesaving Service, the precursor to the US Coastguard.
This piece shows a lifesaver on his patrol as he spots a ship in distress in the misty waters.

So sadly when the ice storm hit southern Alabama and coated the road in a thick layer of ice I was one of the people that had to travel on the roads. I was on my way to the city to pick up my Grandma from the airport so she could come live with me. Though sadly I never made it to the airport to pick her up because as you can see I wrecked my dear diesel. Fucking ice, I moved to Alabama to get away from it. I downshifted while going down a hill and it rocked my back end which caused me to loose control and flip my baby. But that big ole beast started right back up once he was standing again. Wanted to post this as a reminder that ice sucks balls and will wreck you out, no matter what kind of vehicle you are driving or with how much experience you have driving on ice.
