Princess Pepper Cloud said...

that is one huge sea-serpent, he has the most delightful grin, the grin of joy before he causes terror to the wee little people on the ship, that sea-dragon has personality! i love this woodcut print look,

Dang this is fine.

So, where's Beowulf when a ship's crew needs him?

Lovely style, like the contrast of the pouchy area under the sea-dragon's jaw and its narrow throat.

So glad you stopped by and saw/liked Grendel!

John Gardner wrote that great take on the monster, and am now reading Seamus Heaney's translation of Beowulf to get the story from the hero's POV.

I guess my ink was burning -- woke up last night with a fever, so am home sick becoming one with Gatorade!
