Sinbad & the festival board to design this year’s poster Boarder's Away"! I don't always work in color, as those of you who have collected my personal prints over the years know, it was a great deal of fun to do. I will be showing & selling my "High Sea's collection during the festival inside the Maritime Museum again this year, I do hope you will drop by take a look & say Ahoy!
