Gots absolutely no flippin' idea yet, but maybe the inspiration machine will start churning out edible-sized chunks of visions now that I formally joined.. ..I hope!

I blame my co-workers if everything goes horribly wrong. They made me do this!

Before starting to scetch concept schtuff (which is where I suck at), allow me to step into the mind of the person whose viewpoint I'll be trying to replicate, to recreate it in the limitations imposed by two-dimensional, bordered and restrictive media.. Oh dear.

"Good days and pleasing times, friends. Allow me to introduce meself; Lowly member of press such as meself rarely gets to witness events of such scale as what I just saw. No, not rarely - never. When I first heard I would be the sole reporter on the spot, I must admit I believed some evil soul was playing a foul joke on me. But no, it was by the sheer generosity of the goddess of random as my name came out of the machine, where was collected names of all my colleagues in this country. For her I hold gratitude, and great suffering as I know not how to pay my debt to her.

I recon it will be like trying to describe your most unique and personal experience with your hands tied and your mouth gagged, feeble attempts to communicate with muted expressions only. It is burdened to me to deliver my account of the events as they unfolded before my very eyes, in secrecy to protect the fragility and to prevent hysteria as people are feeble-minded and easily taken over by their instinct to be involved. To be honest, I must add that I believe the lone benefactor and protector of this operation wants to hold his cards to himself until the final moment when everything is revealed. It was his wish that only one trusted member of press was allowed, to act as the scribe who writes reference of accounts to be told in the distant future. I know not when you, dear reader, are reading this, but it is the year of 2021, 9 years after the long and bitter Last War and my name is Alexander Mervén, and I am writing this in the city of New Belfast of Europa.

But - try I shall, be it a failure or not! It deserves to be heard and seen, for it was the moment world saw one of it's most remembered icons again, and in new light it told it's story in such vivid and haunting grip that shadowed all the tales told before.. Rarely has the world faced it's own history, it's own follies, mistakes and failured moments of grandeur in the way it did just now. This I shall try to describe, as it is my duty that now binds me. Pardon me for my lousy writing, as it is difficult to hold the stylus steady with such trembling still in my hands. I lay myself down for your judgment, for you are who this is written for."

I'm SO not good with scetches.. I already have a feeling that the final entry will be very different in every aspect. Realized too late this angle doesn't show off the ship(s).
But, still, idea is the same. Now off to do more scetches and modeling lots of detail and think about how an alternate future will design their recovery barges and equipment and and and...

In case someone is still wondering, I'm bringing back the Titanic.

Yeah, Clive Cussler did it already but I'll do a story of my own.. His was in another place, another time. ;)
