The museum continues to gear up for the 14th annual Moby-Dick Marathon, officially starting on Saturday the 9th at noon. Helping to get us there, a series of playful, inventive, and interpretive drawings by Matt Kish. Matt is using his Signet Classic edition from 1992 with 552 pages and planning to make one drawing for each page. He hopes to complete his project in March of 2011, but makes no promises.
From his “One Drawing Every Page of Moby-Dick” project and blog.
Moby-Dick, page 110
Title: “Men may seem detestable as joint stock-companies and nations; knaves, fools, and murderers there may be; men may have mean and meagre faces; but man, in the ideal, is so noble and so sparkling, such a grand and glowing creature, that over any ignominious blemish in him all his fellows should run to throw their costliest robes.”
