I think that I like this, but the theme, and indeed the metaphor, are a little disconcerting. Makes me wonder for how long we must swim against the tide before we atttain ‘freedom’. A thought-provoking post.
Exactly what I thought too. I love this piece. It feels uncomfortable and profound all at once.
Thanks Tony. Your comment means a lot to me. Regards Mark.
I know this is a pretty raw piece, Chris, but thanks for reading and commenting. Regards Mark.
Lovely drawings and tale telling. I dated someone once who would take me fly fishing and I couldn’t figure out the fascination with “catch and release” – years later, I am much more appreciative of the saving of these lives. The one time I managed to catch one it didn’t go so well for the fishy, unfortunately.
Fishing is a cruel sport I now believe and ‘catch and release’ is not a good enough reason. I have only recently started drawing – after working on the comic strips with Christine I felt the need to try it myself – thanks for the encouragement. Regards Mark.
awesome metaphor for life … love this
Yes! Exactly! 🙂
Thank you StaceyMichelle for seeing it. Regards Mark.
I have always had admiration for the simple line sketch. To convey the thought with so little is a special talent.
Thanks Carl – much appreciated – regards Mark.
