The rime of the Ancient Mariner is a poem the Samuel Taylor Coleridge. I have drawn a couple of artworks inspired by it.
The first I drew a few years ago. In the poem the Mariner, who kills the albatross, has the bird hung from his neck. For this design I drew it the other way around. I don't' know why, it was too long ago.
P.S. sorry if I offended any Van Halen fans. This was in the days when we purchased albums without hearing them. It just wasn't my cup of tea.
