maybe it is because i loved pippi long stocking and her father too much when i was a kid. or maybe because i grew up in a town where i couldn't see any ocean, lake, river, pond. sometimes, a puddle, yes, but nothing bigger than that. so i dreamed about the ocean, the big water? i don't know why i keep drawing sailors and fish. it just makes so sense to me, and i'm happy when they come to life.
