Lizzy, I think I am, for now at least, just too aesthetically restless to settle on one medium or style. Hence the sometimes wild variety.

I will include you for pages 346, 347 and 348 indeed.

I think to some, "less than 200 pages to go" might sound like a daunting task, but after what I've already finished it actually seems like not so much left after all. Strange how relative our perspective on things can be.

Regarding this illustration - yes, it was intentional. And if you think a bit about what this project means to me and how I am approaching each piece, I think it will become very clear and make quite a bit of sense.
