A fisherman and an artist works at his craft

Travis Myking,   captain of a longline fishering vessel in Hawaii, is also an incredible artist. ln these photos, Honolulu CC journalism student Keither Tsukamaki has captured him doing what he loves: creating visual art. Being a longline fisherman, there are long periods of waiting while traveling to their fishing destinations, During these times, Travis has practiced and perfected his hobby of creating very detailed artwork. This type or artwork has gotten him through the hardest times, and it is amazing how he is able to keep a steady hand, even through the roughest of waters. Travis has worked very hard the last twenty years and has spent most of his time on the water. These pictures were taken at his penthouse in Kailua, Oahu.
