fire on the cutty sark


Isn't that so sad? The news came on the alarm radio while I was still asleep, and when I woke up, I was so relieved to know it has just been a bad dream. But then it came over the news again, and I had to be depressed a second time. I can't believe someone might have started the fire deliberately, why didn't they target the Starbucks next door, or ...? Bizarre. I love the Cutty Sark, and I even interviewed for the position of ship's rigger a few years ago. (They decided to make me ship's illustrator instead, probably more apt.) I hope the media publicity means lots of people donate money to make all the necessary repairs.

Thanks! It's something I did for one of the mugs in their shop. Can't believe the thing is now blackened timbers...

Wow, Sarah! Really nice work. And thanks for the advice on posting...I hadn't thought changing the resolution on the scanner. I think I'm going to do some practice posts and preview them until I get the format I need.
Again, great work.

Oh, sorry, Sarah. I was only looking at your artwork and skipped over the part about the fire. I just read it in this mornings paper. That's a shame.

that made sam and I sad- we remember it fondly from our trip and visiting with y'all. I love the illustration- I hope they use some of your work in publicizing the need for repair donations. The money would come rolling in!

Aw, thanks! I wonder if they'll use it! I think the mug's still on sale, but I don't know what's happened with the flat image. They'd talked about using it on letterheads and things, but I haven't heard. Hope you guys are doing well.

Re: Cutty Sark exhibition
Thanks for getting in touch. Those are beautiful photos! :-) Yes, I do hope they raise enough money to restore the ship. London really wouldn't be the same without it.
