Bill the capitan

The grey story of Bill the sailor
Bill is an English ship captain, an old sea wolf that smokes to keep himself ward during the cold sea nights. Captain Bill works in Liverpool and sails the seas every day.


A curiosity
When I went to Liverpool, its connexion with the sea and sailor life heavily inspired me. I walked through the dock, full of seaweed and salt stench. I observed the ships, covered by the salty wind and grey clouds. From this journey, Bill the sailor was born.
