Saw the first two and said "This guy is an artist, too!".

Saw the third one and said "Whatthehellisthat?" Then saw the whale is going over backward. My perspective was skewed at first.

So then I said "Yeah, he is a friggin' artist!".

Hat's off to ya'. I can't draw a plate of spaghetti... .

Having toyed with doing something along those lines, I have to ask what was wrong with the original ink besides being old. Is it fair to assume you are using india ink, the permanent or waterproof version thereof?  BTW Great results on all three!
