Yeah, that one is pretty old, I basically drew it right outta the book. The rest are painted from photographic reference.

And finally this is me at the museum in Gatlinburg TN. I’ve been a huge Titanic geek since I was about 7.
Yeah, I've also been a big Titanic fan since I saw the 97 film at age 5 on VHS.

By the way, you're quite a handsome man and I love your stocking cap! I have one just like it, only it's striped, and I also have quite a lot of facial hair like you. :D I think I'll send you a photo of me wearing it. ;)

I caught the bug in about Autumn ‘89, I was in 2nd grade; we watched the Nat Geo doc about the discovery of the wreck. The one Martin Sheen narrated. I wouldn’t shut up about it to my folks, they saw fit to snag me the kiddie version of the Ballard ‘Discovery’ book for Christmas, which was full of Ken Marschall paintings. I’ve been completely obsessed for 30 years since.

I have all 3. They’re for kids in the sense that they’re all paperback and have simple writing, but they’re all excellent and full of photos and paintings I’ve never seen anywhere else.

That’s right, it is. I have that book also. I would like to see an updated version, with the Doria all collapsed, and the paintings Ken did of Yorktown.
