I subscribe to an email list/blog by illustrator Leif Peng. He came by a large file of illustrations (most pre-1960 I think) and publishes these, along with stories of the artists, on his blog. He just finished an incredible series by an artist who was a WWII prisoner of war.
This one is by David Shaw (click on the image for a high-res version).
We're riding the financial market waves at LRRD now (the Dow crashed again today), and struggling with hiring and marketing expansion decisions. When I saw this illustration on Leif's blog, my first thought was "I feel like that guy at the tiller." I hope we get some flat water soon.
