yasme_water_graphic

I created this digital painting from a random Wikipedia search. I happened to land on an article about YASME, which is an organization named after the yacht “Yasme” that did DXpeditions (expeditions performed by amateur radio operators to provide long distance communications). Though it seemed like a somewhat boring topic at first, I latched onto the idea that many of these expeditions are done solo to exotic, remote areas. This inspired an image of a boy shipwrecked at sea staring into the moon.
