Whirlpool hand-painted stool

It's been all go in the Drawn in Bristol studio recently, with quite the Spring clean going on. Part of sprucing up the place has many of the studio members customising their own (IKEA) stool for the meeting area, so keep an eye on their blog for updates.

For mine, I wanted to play on the circle shape and not do anything too serious. Taking elements commonly found on stereotypical pirate maps, I opted for a disaster-at-sea situation in the form of a whirlpool ensnaring sea monsters and a few nautical characters. Painted in acrylic and sealed with two layers of matt varnish, this should hold up for some time.

I can't wait to see what my fellow studio-mates do with theirs.
