Charles W. Morgan, the Last Wooden Whaling Ship

Hi! It's been a long time since I've last posted a blog. I'm happy to share this project I've been working on with the Dalvero Academy for the past two years. We've been documenting the restoration of the last wooden whaling ship in the world, the Charles W. Morgan, at Mystic Seaport Museum in Connecticut. Each artist from the Dalvero Academy has also developed individual projects that has lead to a collaborative gallery show with the museum. Here are some of my drawings from the many trips we made to the museum!

I am very excited to invite everyone to come see the show which will be opening the end of April at Mystic Seaport. The show is titled: Restoring a Past, Charting a Future, An Artistic Discovery of America's Whaling Legacy by the Dalvero Academy. You can follow us on Facebook: Twitter and our website: to get a preview of what the other artists are working on for the show.

It's been a wonderful experience! I hope you will enjoy the art as much as we've enjoyed working on it.
