Bartholomew M. Quint was a grizzled, seasoned shark hunter, who resided on the Island of Amity, MA in the shanty seaside port of Menemsha. Quint, as he was known, captained the Orca, operating a small charter business, Shark Hunting Expeditions of Amity. He became part of local lore after his last trip out to sea in a bid to capture a giant rogue killer shark ended in his death, the sinking of the Orca, and of course, the destruction of his prey. This version of the Shark Hunting Expeditions design is treated with plenty of distressing to give it a great vintage look.

I have no particular reason for loving sharks, but I do. I really want people to have a positive impression of sharks, and I get kind of upset about a week on cable devoted to sensational stories about sharks that make them out to be big scary monsters. They're like the bears of the sea; sure, they COULD tear your arms off, but we also have, like, Winnie the Pooh to balance out the fiercer image of bears, and I want sharks to have that wide spectrum of popular imagery. So this shark just feels great, and he's happy to see you.
