The Weekend Captain - comic

A caricature figurine designed by Guillermo Forchino. The cartoon figurine pokes fun at a man who likes to spend weekends on his pleasure boat, feeling like the sporty gentleman. In his middle age, he would like to regain that sense of freedom, feel the wind in his sparse hair and, of course, want to stand out.

The Story...
Fernando Menéndez´s grandfather was an old sea dog, a World War II Pacific veteran, while his father, an Admiral on the Queen Elizabeth II, knew the Seven Seas like the back of his hand.
Fernando, aiming at nothing less, sold his car, pawned one of his grandmother's necklaces, and bought himself a small second-hand boat. Happy as a pig in mud, he set sail with the wind blowing in his face to conquer unknown seas.
A quest he would have accomplished, had it not been for that cursed sandbank that made him run aground just three hundred meters out of port.
 
General
Guillermo Forchino designs funny sculptures with a light sense of humour and colour. 
The caricaturistic style makes the sculpture comical, because mistakes or character traits of the human race are magnified in a humorous way. He does this in such a way that we all recognize something of ourselves in it. Nice to give as a present.
