sketches on board a Coast Guard cutter

Ice-harvest
Here’s something rather cool that I didn’t know people still did: an artist named Bob Selby on board the Coast Guard Cutter Healy, the Guard’s largest Arctic-deployed icebreaker, journaled the deployment through pencil sketches. The images have a quiet, timeless quality but also show people at work on sometimes simple, sometimes complicated tasks routine to life on an icebreaker. The Healy was on a primarily scientific mission, collecting zooplankton and ice core samples 335 miles north of the Arctic Circle.
