Worse Things Happen at Sea
By Kellie Strom
Worse Things Happen at Sea utilizes Nobrow’s popular Leporello series to allow Strøm to flex his drawing muscles and come up with a monster of a concertina book. Inspired by tales of mythical sea creatures and the tall stories of doomed voyages passed down from sailor to son, Strøm brings us a rich tapestry of wonderment. Historical ships are attacked, enveloped and engorged by monstrous creatures surfacing from the deepest depths of the darkest oceans. Covering 20 panels each measuring 138 mm x 235 mm the image unfolds in front of you like a foreboding fable from the cracked lips of an old sea captain.
