Macmillan Images Pt2

Here are a few more images from the educational book I was working on.
Again unfortunately there simply wasn't the time to do proper realised drawings of ships and their equipment and to fix/redraw things wholly from the roughs. So its the dream of a ship and the dream of a ships compass(in the same way as my gingerbread man and fox is the dream of afox and a piece of dancing gingerbread.)
Which is a shame but thats the reality of the time/money/quality thing.
Still its much more elaborate than I think they were expecting.

Hi Lachlan, I love the McMillan illustrations, they have a great classic adventure-y feel.

Thanks dave,
Yeah that work and milenkos constant stream of pirates has sort of got me interested in that sort of thing- except i really need proper reference for the ship if i did more.
I often have a peek at your blog but was a bit slack not to have left a comment. You need to post more of your images sir. Where were you going to work after your degree?

Thanks for the nudge, I posted another Image. As for where am I gonna work, well I'm applying to various companies right now. I have an interview the day after tomorrow. Japanese companies are very conservative though. They are very hesitant to take on foreigners. Its all about introductions..... very japanese.
