Ice Station Revisted

All told I made four expeditions on Sir William's behalf, during a period of six years, along the East Coast of Hudson Bay, through the barren lands of the hitherto unexplored peninsula of Ungava, along the west coast of Ungava Bay and along the southern coast of Baffin Land. This work culminated in the discovery of the Belcher Island archipelago in Hudson Bay -a land mass which occupies 5,000 square miles- upon this land mass were discovered extensive deposits of iron ore but all of too low a grade, however, to be of economic importance. As a part of my exploration equipment, on these expeditions, a motion-picture outfit was included.

Blasty from the Pasty

It was fall of 2007, and Rachel Salomon was teaching me to paint. I made a lot of paintings of monsters, with various awesome techniques, because that was what we did back in the day. Thanks for the pro tips Rach.

Additionally, I'd been drawing Draculas compulsively instead of taking notes for about a year at this point. I have since slowed down the Draculas, and moved onto drawing fat animals.
