MOBY-DICK, Page 264

Title: In bony, ribby regions of the earth, where at the base of high broken cliffs masses of rock lie strewn in fantastic groupings upon the plain, you will often discover images as of the petrified forms of the Leviathan partly merged in grass, which of a windy day breaks against them in a surf of green surges.

  1. This one reminds me of Troll 2. I mean that in the most complimentary way possible.

  2. Trust me A, I truly take that for the compliment that it is. I still have embarrassingly fond memories of seeing the first "Leprechaun." In the theater. With a ticket I paid full price for.

  3. I love the drawings, but it's seeing the prose that inspires you that is loveliest. I read the book years ago and though I remember how absorbing it was, seeing the sentences pulled out is just gobsmacking. What prose!

    Congrats on the book deal, well-earned.

  4. Thank you Noramay, the connections between the prose and the images are a constant source of fascination for me. Sometimes they seem to tenuous, yet sometimes the parallels seem almost eerie. It's something I am going to be thinking more deeply about as I head into the second half of this endeavor.

    And thanks for the congrats too. It will be very exciting to finally make an official announcement soon.
