the World's First Cruise Ship
Watercolor - Gouache - Colored Pencils

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.

I rather think logically than putting blind faith into something.
