the World's First Cruise Ship by theartyst the World's First Cruise Ship by theartyst
the World's First Cruise Ship
Watercolor - Gouache - Colored Pencils
40" x 60" Copyright © 2003 VictorPowell.com

Large Posters are Available here :buymyprints:

I live in South Florida, The Cruise Capital of the World,... hmmm, I thought to myself (one day back in 2002) What can I draw that would be appealing, funny to a variety of people AND sell as a poster/print (still gotta make a living - ya know)

After putting on my Victor Powell Amazing Idea hat I immediately came up with this idea!! What was the Very First Cruise EVER? Where couples from ALL Over the land gathered together for an amazing Journey,... what would they have done to keep occupied for such a long time?

You might ask, "Who would buy this Art Poster"? (thanks for the great question) People that love animals, people that love Noah's Ark, daycares, daycares with the name Noah or Ark in them (at last count there were over 58 in America alone - I know cuz I've done the research), a daycare that loves cool art, Cruising, people that have children, are decorating their children's bedrooms, people that love unique conversation pieces, etc ...

OK, Now U see what a can of worms you have opened with that question? I must go on,... People that love color, colorful art, art with hidden messages, art full of puns, art that tells a story, tells more than one story, people that love rainbows, partying, swimming, sports and animals such as a chameleon, duck, frog, alligator, crocodile, penguin, turtle, otter, pink flamingo, deer, orca / killer whale, polar bear, brown bear, hippo, cow, puffin, koala, giraffe, kangaroo, chimpanzee, owl, camel, parrot, gorilla, lion, panda, eagle, rabbit, tiger, ostrich, turkey, rhino, elephant, stork, (he delivers all the newborns) walrus, toucan, skunk, pig, ram, zebra, woodpecker, and lovebirds. --- free prize to the first 10 who tell me which one I left out and why?

That is certainly NOT the world's first cruise and infact this event never existed and it only exists in the minds of Abrahamic religious followers.

Victor, you are way too funny! I love all of your artwork! You must have a huge passion for what you do, because it truly shows in your art. All the detailing, variety, humor, I am awestruck and an instant fan! If you don't have a huge passion for what you do...oh my gosh! You can actually do this all by yourself from brain to hand to paper? Gack! I don't believe it! God has been very good to you to give you the talent and gifts you have. I know it takes a lot of commitment, elbow grease, and hard work. I'm sure you have paid your dues. Anyway, I am glad I found you and so look forward to more of your work. :0)

Thanks, really - it's so nice when SOMEone "gets it" or gets me as an artist.

Speaking of Huge Passion for what I do. Huge isn't a gig-enuf word :lmao: i think u know what I mean ;)

I have been doing this art thing full-time and professionally for like 35+ years now, ... And feel like a babe Still (as an artist). So, yes the best is YET to come,...

I'd love to share this video w/ya,... If you haven't seen it yet. [link]

You are so welcome. I do appreciate artists who work as well as you do.

35+ years,huh? Wow, you must be really old! Just kidding...you are more than likely much younger than me. Any who, I watched your video and I am impressed. You did a fine job on that. I really liked all the morphing of your photos. Well done! Thanks for sharing it.

:hmm: ... it seems i have learned a New Word 2day "anthro" IF I can surmise from the other pics - it must mean a combination of Human AND Animal - if so "this painting is Not anthro"

Actually it is a combination of human and any other thing on the planet - even fruits, vegetables, cars... many things! Most people use animals though, probably because of cartoons :)

Shouldn't there be people in it, too...? And did you leave them out because the world would be much better off without them.....? :P
Spectacular work by the way, truly impressive....
Just curious: did you sell a lot of posters?

and IF there weren't any people here - those mangy paws would have trouble trying to type on these keyboards ... (oh, sorry,... um, that's assuming they would've invented computers AND the internet) :rofl: :lmao:

posters are always 4 sale,... wanna buy one? ya can't beat $20.00
