Something made me think of my very favourite English teacher, Mr. Tom Sherry today.
First novel (novella, according to Monsieur Wiki) we tackled in Gr. 10 English involved a man and a marlin. And it changed my perspective on life, art, literature, and everything else forever.
It also made me appreciate beards more than any other facial hair fashion.
Check out 365sketch. Some great great work up there. Makes me want to draw more. Add to the resolution list.
