Set to Sea pg. 100
•I’m sort of in-between paying gigs right now, since I’m still beating my head against my next big comics project, Margo Maloo. So if you’ve been looking to hire a cartoonist / illustrator / colorist / letterer / graphic designer – hey! drew at drewweing dot com
•There’s an early, positive review of the Set to Sea book at the Daily Crosshatch, which is nice. It does have a small misunderstanding in it, though, which I’ve heard from a couple people. So, even though it’s kind of a bullshit move to come rushing in as the author to correct people’s interpretations, here I go: The main character in Set to Sea is not a pirate, nor is he on a pirate ship! He was shanghaied onto a regular old merchant clipper ship, as happened frequently in the wild and woolly tea trade of the 1800s. It seems important to clarify – if you come to the story expecting the main character to be a pirate, you might be disappointed by a distinct lack of piratical activities.
