Description 'Gulf of Siam' Gulf of Thailand. Drawn by hand, with pen and India ink, while living on the beach in Maenam, Koh Samui, Thailand.
White elephants and a sea dragon protect this chart's journey. Like all my dragons, this one created himself, and the royal white elephants seemed to grow organically with the lotus flowers up the columns.
The traditional long boat I have drawn here, was tied to the coconut palm each evening, and was out fishing before dawn every morning: I sketched it while watching the sun set one evening on Maenam Beach.
The Thai script, that I have written above the Lotus Flower (bottom left), reads 'My Thailand' in the native words/script (as Thais do not call their country Thailand). *Koh or Ko means island (Ko is older way).
My artwork is also available as custom murals on kiln fired tile. Visit www.savanna-art.com for more information.

Artist and author, may sound like an odd combination but like most creatives, my muse hand delivers inspiration to be modeled or hatched in several mediums. Some find their muse delivers music and poetry. Mine delivers stories in an image to paint or draw, like a scrap of film on the cutting room floor, via dreams and lucid daydreams. Each story comes with its own medium, paint, ink or sometimes sculpting in various media. And always, I’ve written creative stories along with the painting. But I didn’t take it serious, my paintings and ink drawings were my focus, until I moved to Mae Nam Thailand for a year and my box of art supplies took a solo tour of Asia. So with only my carry on and notebook in hand, words became my new creative medium.
