Dead Confederates, A Civil War Era Blog


Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on January 25, 2014


A few weeks ago I was contacted by a graphic designer working with the Brazilian magazine Superinteressante  about using my renderings of U.S.S. Monitor in an upcoming issue devoted to weaponry. I’m not familiar with the magazine, but it’s described in Wiki as a “scientific and cultural magazine, that uses simple language focusing on the understanding of complicated topics by the general public.” I got a sneak peek at the layout today (above). Works for me.

      I think they mistook the perspective view of the model, which almost completely hides the lower part of the hull, for a waterline model, and so drew the waterline too low in the profile at top — much less of Monitor‘s hull was actually exposed than suggested in the diagram. It was more like this:

    And just think, you can now bill yourself as an internationally known artist!

    “Aquatic tank” is a pretty apt description of the Monitor. Kind of brings it full circle with Wells’ “The Land Ironclads”.

      Yeah, that was the translation I got, too. I’m curious about the rest of the text, but I’ll have to wait until the paper copy arrives to get a clean read of it.
