Catch-A-Sketch (Custom Quick Sketches by Istvan (Steve) Diossy!)

June 05, 2013

My roots always go back to sketching and doodling. It's one of my favorite things to do. 

Here's the latest one I created for Casey & Jason:

The Story behind it: 

"After decades of trying, my boyfriend finally hooked a sailfish only to almost have his dream fish taken away by a careless boater in a center console. The boater had seen us fighting the fish for a while and decided to take a closer look, (too close!), in which he drove his boat right over his line. Despite my boyfriend and I both screaming at him, he never stopped, he just looked at us like we had 3 heads. Miraculously it somehow did not cut the line! A little while later I grabbed the bill, my boyfriend Jason grabbed the tail and after a couple pictures were taken, the fish swam away to be caught another day. Is there anyway you could capture that story in a sketch? It was pretty hectic and our most memorable fishing trip! Our boat is a center console. If you include us in the sketch, my boyfriend was wearing shorts and a long sleeve shirt. He'a thin, has short hair, a hat, sunglasses, and a short beard and mustache. I'm thin, have long brown hair, and was wearing a hat,sunglasses and a black bikini. 

I just want something simple to commemorate his most prized catch and that crazy day. 

Thank you so much!-Casey"

A fish swims up to a bar and splashes down with a pirate, a crab, and a Marlin. He orders a round of drinks. Things get a little rowdy and the next thing you know.... It becomes a Raw Bar.
