I know some time has elapsed since I posted about the last panel, but fear not, I have been working away! I finished panel IV this week. I’m calling it “The Oceans are Teeming.”
This is a story told in stroboscopic post hole moments. I hope the leaps I’m making aren’t too grand. In this panel, there are some small fish at the bottom, but as your gaze travels upwards, the number and complexity of organisms increases. Note that the fish don’t fit tidily. They are pushing out of the boundaries of the space they are allotted.
Most of the fish on this panel were cut out (during my daughter’s swim lessons, which I found rather apropos), but I did create a trio of jellyfish, one lone octopus, and a little squad of cuttlefish. A treat for someone who stays to linger a moment or two extra.
Next up: dinosaurs and an abstract allusion to evolution. Hopefully that will be done much more quickly.
