Description: A series of boats on a background of hand drawn flag semaphore signals which spell “HELP.” My entry in the Sailing contest. Flag semaphores were used at sea in the 19th century and are still used today although shutter semaphores and lighted wands are more common.

anniedeb says: Oh, thanks so much, Amy and Su. I was casting around for an idea and I remembered semaphores from Scouting. And I don't know if this story is maybe just apocryphal but according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_semaphore, the Beatles -- on their album HELP -- John, Paul, George and Ringo were going to use semaphore to spell out "HELP." They ended up choosing another arrangement of their bodies but I still thought that was an interesting bit of trivia. Thank you both for taking a look at the design. I always appreciate your comments. I learn a lot from you both. Thank you.

su_g says: Wonderful!! What a clever idea to use semaphore as the background! The background by itself could be an interesting coordinate for this design - as well as an appealing design in its own right.

amy_g says: Deborah, this is absolutely charming, love how you drew the boats. Plus, I learned something, I did not know what semaphores were!! SP is educational as well as fun! :o)
