Dive Down: my personal fairy story


 Starting on Sunday the 21st of June 2015, I shared a picture a day from my illustrated story on

Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and Google+

The book is now available as a free PDF to download here, and in paperback on Amazon here

From 'Dive Down' by Sam Goodlet - www.samdrawsthings.com

Dive Down started life as a series of illustrations which I created during a time of quiet contemplation and meditation.

I read a lot of books and articles, listened to music and went for long walks in the woods.  At the end of my self-imposed retreat I felt like a new person – and I had a sketchbook full of images.

With the help and guidance of some amazing friends the drawings evolved into a book.

My friend Sam Attenborough  added words to the pictures to help capture and communicate the story.

Our intention now is to share the story far and wide, to help other people doing their deep sea diving of their own.  I gave 100 free copies away, some of which I hid in different locations for people to find…
