I love this drawing by Amelia Langford. (Seriously, go check it out before you read any further.) I love the colors. I love the size of the waves compared to the itty-bitty boat.
When I saw this page the thing that stuck with me were all those "ing" words. All about water--too much water---it made me think of Amelia's boat picture, and I drew this.
So if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... consider this big time flattery!
And isn't it cool how in just one page our hero is both lost and saved? Yay for RDCBs!
