Aye, aye, Captain!

     Meet Captain Bill Wheedle, retired seaman and master of the secret art of Oar-a-gami. Some people will tell you that it's spelled o-r-i-g-a-m-i and that it is the Chinese art of paper folding. They are simply confused by the similar spelling. Very few people are even aware of the existence of this maritime martial art. It's hard to attract new students when all the local brawlers think you want to teach them to master their minds and bodies through artistic paper folding. The Captain here is one of the last true masters of the style.
     He is also the first assignment for my character design class with Jake Parker. It's pretty exciting.
