I very much like how the illustration from the found page ties in VERY well with your own drawing.

This seems like a dream to me.

I love it.

I really dig this picture--the lines are just so fluid and bold, so it has a lot of impact. And it works really well with the found paper you used. Keep it up!

Thank you Crysti, I quite like it as well. A bit of a statement, although I am certain you know what I mean.

Thank you very much Hannah, I am really truly glad you are still looking in on these illustrations.

I've grown quite fond of those wavy watery lines Rudy, so I expect that motif will show up in a few more pieces. At least in the near future. What has been consistently challenging and exciting about this project is that I really have no idea how I'll be depicting the book 200 or 300 pages from now.
