+2 FOR ME!

Cymru said...

I've been following your blog for quite some time now, and I truly love your artwork.

P.S. I'm finally not Anonymous anymore!

Nicole said...

Pacific! Thank you!

Graham Fisher said...

We all know the skulldugery is to be had in the Indian Ocean. This is strange, but I totally hear sound looking between the two images. Nice jump cut, man.

Aaron Cooke said...

I'm going to go with Arctic Ocean just because I like the way the word arctic sounds. Really hope I win this one as I've been eyeing that drawing when it was on your etsy page!

Mary said...

Well, one day I'll be living in a country on the Indian Ocean :) Good work Cory!

Chad Ethridge said...

The Pacific . . . it's so vast.

Rinry said...

I love the Atlantic Ocean. I was looking at it this morning :)

Will said...

I like oceans. I think I like the way Pacific sounds, but I've only ever been to the Atlantic. The Mediterranean is an awesome name if only it was an ocean!

Hope that the science partner has recovered from the initial shock of today's subject.

patrick said...

North sea. Pretty cold and stormy. Good for weltschmerz.
Your gifts are getting better and better! What can we expect for tomorrow?!

Alicia said...

Both of these are awesome. The print reminds me of Van Gogh's "Man with Poplars."

Jordie Bellaire said...

Nice work, Godbey!
My ULTIMATE favorite body of water is THE RED SEA.

m.b said...

I love all the oceans. Don't think I could pick a favorite, there are too many great things about each of them.

David M said...

Oh man! I love this sketch! So cool.

My fav ocean would have to be the Arctic Ocean. What a great name! It even sound cold :).

Dani said...

I like the Atlantic. :)

Laura said...

I like the Pacific and the pieces you are giving away today. Great work.

Caleb said...

I'm going to go with the Indian Ocean.

Heather said...

Count me in again!

Charles Valsechi III said...

Poseidon's ocean.

Joe Hox said...

I like the Atlantic, more specifically, the Gulf of Mexico. If it's possible to fall in love with a place, I have... on the Island, Isla Mujeres off the tip of Mexico.

Enjoying your work!

S.Cruver said...

This is for my daughter.

Love your blog!

Joseph & Rebekah said...

Another great give away... and your cat is too funny!

Not a big ocean fan either, but I've always wanted to meet a real live polar bear, so I will say the Arctic.

Paul said...

"I want that"

kelli said...

these are beautiful! i've also been following your blog for quite some time. your art stirs something deep within me:)

all that to say...thank you for doing what you do! you do it brilliantly!

Nathan said...

The Atlantic is fantastic

Kerry Parker said...

I've got to give it up to the Atlantic, because I live on the east coast of the US and it's always been there for me.

JGaroutte said...

Love your stuff! Following everything you are working on... Ticket has got to be the best book I've purchased in years, and your Terrible Yellow Eyes blog was truly inspiring!

Keep up the fantastic work!

Gwendolyn said...

Arden needs this in her nursery. Think of my child, Cory....

Anyway, my favorite ocean today is the Pacific because I'm currently staring out my window at it and man, is it gorgeous: grey with just the right amount of fog and giant, angry waves crashing on the rocks down at the point.

gettis said...

Oh awesome!
Oceanus Procellarum
Thanks Cory.

ThinkBaker said...

it occurred to me that the animals are swimming around in the water in the oceans in our bodies and another had been found another ocean on the planet given that our blood is just like the Atlantic
And how

I love this drawing!

Lianne said...

I like the Pacific Ocean. :)

I've been a regular reader of your blog, and I just have to say that your work is just wonderful. Keep up the lovely work.

Dani said...

I have lived long in Tenerife (Canary Islands) and I must say that the cold water of the Atlantic Ocean revives the dead...

I love the water there.

theinvisiblechild said...

Atlantic is the only one i ever saw, so I'll go with it.

And these drawings are brilliant...

netterkins said...

i thoroughly enjoyed Oceans 11,12 and 13.

zeno said...

marianer depths for me. love ur drawings.

char said...

Long time lurker, first time poster :) Really enjoy your artwork, very inspiring!

My favorite ocean would be the Pacific, for all its vastness and mystery. If it could be any body of water, i'd have to say the Mediterranean. Clear turquoise waters, beautiful marine life, gorgeous beaches... aaaah why is it still winter????

JMD said...

Pacific...but it's the only one I've ever met.

Great work. I love it.

illeR said...

Ohh, I want it!! It's really nice!!

Jennie said...

Atlantic or Pacific...it's like comparing apples to oranges, and I love them both!
Also love these pieces!

Johnny McKenna said...

oh boy oh boy oh boy! Lucky day if this lands in my mailbox some day!

Favorite ocean...probably the pacific...surfs up.

Donna said...

Ohhh I love your Grimm illustrations, so I'm emerging from lurk-dom and leaving a comment. Favorite ocean... I suppose Atlantic, but if i were to expand and consider seas as well, I'd say Mediterranean. :)

malamatenia said...

Pirate Trish said...

The pacific fer shure!

pencrush said...

arctic ocean, because I'll probably never see it. Great work!

Mel said...

Great picture! The Atlantic is my favorite because it's where I grew up.

Josh said...

Sweet pic too. Really like the Ivan final photo too

Rob Fullmer said...

I've always been fond of the Atlantic.

SD Smith said...

I love the Ohshin Ocean.

staralfur said...

Rocking the Atlantic.

kingcoyote said...

The Atlantic, definately. Though it seems like the Indian ocean is often overlooked....

Great work, man!

Maria said...

Ok, so I was all excited because I didn't see any posts on your blog. I thought SWEET, I'll definitely win this one... which was so cool because I think this one is awesome. Aaand then I realized I was on your FB account.

But anyway, thanks for doing this. It just makes me happy. *crossing fingers, hoping I'll win*

PS-Pacific

Maurice said...

Atlantic ocean, only one I've seen so far...

Michelle Garcia said...

I love the Atlantic Ocean. Especially around the Caribbean, where the water is crystal clear. :D

Walter Silva said...

U R the BOMB!

Cate Raff said...

This is a sweet one! I'll have to say the Indian Ocean.

Krissie G said...

Hm, I think I'd like the Indian Ocean the best, but I've never seen it. :-) Come to think of it, I've only seen the Atlantic from 30,000 feet (or so).

I love your work! I have several prints from your Grimm collection, but not Ivan and the Firebird... (So maybe it's not fair that I'm entering?)

Are you planning to sell prints of your Mario pieces? I love 'em!!

oxypetala said...

I am a fan of the Southern Ocean, but the Atlantic is home.

Del said...

I LOVE the Firebird!!!! And if I were randomly selected to be the recipient, I know that Brenna would steal this in a heartbeat and put it in a place of honor in her room. Btw, my favorite ocean is the Pacific.

The Watcher said...

Whichever ocean Ponyo lives in makes me smile.

Mark said...

Your artwork is great!!! My sister has two of your pictures in her house, one of a mole reading in a big blue armchair and one of a tree and a girl having "tea"---keep it up, they are all beautiful. Someday I will get me one, too!
