Artist's description:

Gabriel supposedly met this fellow Albert in a seaside pub. Albert then went on to explain how he used to be trapped in a whale. Gabriel knew this of course, as he'd once been trapped in the same whale. The lettering in this painting was created through the aid of a 100 year old instructional manual on handwritten typography - apparently the only thing Albert had in his pockets when he was swallowed. But anyways, Albert passed the time in the whale by amusing himself by saying such things as, "I play the accordion once in a whale." Perhaps we can all learn from that optimism once in a whale... eh while.
