I like the idea. It reminds me of this.

||Nice drawing, but it doesn't feel right,
somehow. I'm not sure how to make
my point without seeming rude. But in
this case, I get the feeling that I'm
reading a pointer towards a clever and
amusing cartoon on someone's site,
rather than reading an idea and then
being referred to an illustration.
||I guess I'm saying that I would have
liked the idea to be in the writing more
than in the illustration.
||I thought the idea needed an illustration
to convey the iconic impact that would
otherwise not have been apparent with
a written description alone. Visual
imagery is important to me.
||Neat concept and illustration [+], but the angle of the oar looks a bit steep - might be easier to row if it enters at the base of the conning tower?
||//to convey the iconic impact that would
otherwise not have been apparent with a
written description alone.// I agree. But
my point was that the text on the HB was
more of a pointer towards a illustration
than an idea which was clarified by an
illustration. Keep the illustration but make
the text more descriptive. Anyway.
