As a young(ish) member of the Dolphin Club, I just want to say you beautifully captured the feeling and magic of the building and the people who make it. I especially loved seeing the renderings of the old ladies and John, Walt, and Ken.
I used to see these intrepid human animals in the water every morning when I was working on a boat at the pier. It always felt like peering back into an older state of being, and you capture that vibe here perfectly.
Beautiful. Looks beautiful on my browser. I hope Seth gets to see it. Some of the loveliest use of the virtual page I have ever seen. Thank you, Wendy MacNaughton! I would love to see it in print, but oh, what lovely use of the wwweb.
A flick of the wrist; economy in motion, each stroke conveys our little world.
Has anyone ever rendered our intrepid swimmers,our flagged little row boats, and our odd swimming accoutrements so charmingly?
Great artful story-telling, Wendy. thankyou
I haven’t been able to view the drawings. I can view Wendy’s chess players okay. There must be a slight difference in technology used to display the two sets of drawings on the web site. If the diff was known then a tweak of browser settings would likely solve the problem
This is an incredible series of images. It made me see the Dolphin Club anew, a place I go almost everyday, and fall in love with it again. As for Ken being one of the old goats, I think he still has a few years ahead of him before he qualifies.
happy to hear this resonates with the dolphins. peter, no print repros available yet (though there will be one to view at the club soon). who knows, maybe these will be made into a book someday. meanwhile, if there is a particular image you are interested in, contact me at email@example.com
Looks great on Firefox 3.6.12 on Mac OS X. Intense economy of words and lines, everything pulling its weight and more! *demonstrates crush on Wendy with a comparatively economical posting (for her anyway)*
