Hola Craig Art fans! This is the estupendo–the illustrious–Señor Tortuga. For those of you who don’t know me, I am the former pet of a generous Earl, who left his title and fortune to me upon his death, making me the first turtle of leisure. I’ve decided to take a break from my travels to check in with Noah Craig in the Drawing Room. He doesn’t seem to be around, so we’ll sneak a peak at what he’s working on.
This is quite a beautiful artistic space he has. Nice light. Nice amount of space. Nice view of woods. Very quiet.
There seems to be quite a bit of projects happening. I see some paintings, clippings for a collage, colored lanterns, a framed photo of Tom Selleck from Magnum P.I., and an infinite array of pencils, colored pencils, and markers.
At the center of his desk there are a series of schematic-style pencil drawings. One is of various types of cigars (although it’s missing my favorite, the culebra):
Another appears to be the Whiskey family tree:
A third is a sailboat:
Quite the eclectic commission. I wonder if he’d be willing to do one chronicling the evolution of the turtle from the slow crawler to the glorious sentient creatures we are today. I’ll leave him a note mentioning it.
As usual, everything here looks wonderfully done. Hopefully next time I’ll have a chance to sit down with him and ask him all about his process. Until then, I leave you for a riverboat tour of the Rhine’s castles.
Until next time!
(If there are any questions you would like me to ask Craig Art House, please send leave it in the response below!)
