FWD: {Ernest Shackleton}

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton, was a polar explorer who led three British expeditions to the Antarctic, and one of the main figures of the period known as the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. I drew him for this month's Friends Who Draw. My father is a huge admirer of him, and we had this long video series with Kenneth Branagh in it, who played him. Being an explorer would have been exciting but incredibly dangerous back in the day. I feel like there isn't much exploring of the unknown these days. Though I still hear of people who find these tribes in Africa that have no idea the rest of the world even exists.
