Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

The pictures below have been used in various locations on Seaview Stories, from Abby's Attic to a few Site Pals communications on site and privately. There's been a little interest to see them without the digitizing dots blurring them due to shrinkage.

Believe it or not, this is an actual portrait. I couldn't help thinking about the similarities to a certain blond XO. The antique was up for auction and I don't recall (shame on me) the name of the sitter or the artist.

This was a contrived portrait I made of Crane using a real portrait of an 18th/19th century sea captain as a template. I've since forgotten who the original sitter was.

This is a contrived portrait of Chip prior to his launch in 'Journey With Fear'. Unfortunately no matter what I tried I couldn't get the patches to bend well enough like the real ones used by NASA. Oh well.
