Stunning build with the last four. Really excellent stuff; so, so atmospheric, resonant and visually arresting.

Titus, that really makes me happy to read. In some ways, I have been dreading these last 3 chapters. After all, this is it...this is the climax. This is what Melville, and this project, have been building toward through all of those hundreds of pages and hundreds of days. And now, more people than ever are visiting, and there is the weight of their own expectations. I have been pushing myself very hard but trying to remain true to my original vision for this project which is to take what I see in the novel and simply do what I want. I have 11 more pages to draw (as of this morning) and I hope to see this thing through to the end successfully.

Lizzy, as you know, I do love drawing skulls. It may seem a rather obvious symbol of death and destruction, but it is what I see and how I see it and this is my project so...there will more skulls in the coming pages. Promise.
