MOBY DICK by Will Pigg
Moby Dick, by Will Pigg, is a hand cut silhouette featuring his own version of the classic story Moby Dick.
Depicted is Moby Dick, at the end of story, getting attacked by the whalers. Captain Ahab is seen wrapped up in his harpoon line where Moby Dick has pulled him to his death. The whalers' boat is seen at the bottom, broken. There is a large Captain Ahab on the left showing his whale killing. On the upper right we see Ishmael, the lone survivor, floating on caskets that have been pulled up from the ocean - where he stays until rescued..
Will hand draws out the image and scans it in, (to keep it consistent), then redraws it so it is tighter and undeviating, for later use. Then he transfers the image onto a black sheet of heavy card-stock paper and gets to cutting. After it's cut out, he mounts/frames it (if they require framing) by sandwiching it in-between custom-made acrylic panels for a classy, unique, beautiful and contemporary frameless look.

*Acrylic frame cleaning suggestions: Microfiber cloths work best for fingerprints and dust. If it's really dirty, microfiber cloth with very little lukewarm water works too. Avoid using glass cleaners, alcohol, ammonia or all purpose cleaners. Do not use abrasive materials like paper towels or sponges.
