It's a... bit of a departure. As I was working on Page 8, my son asked if he could help (he's 4). I kindly asked him to leave that page, as I was almost done, but he could do a little to this page, which I'd laid out in pencil (again, after a page from 'Still Life'). He took a pen and scribbled over the whole thing. Not sure why I expected anything different.
But, y'know... it did add a totally new element to the page, which was going to be very constructed, and a lot of hard work. As you can see, I've started working into what he left, and hope if I continue it'll all work out. Check back, if you're interested, I'm sure I'll post up the finished page.
It's essentially an abstraction of a page from 'Still Life' (by John Smith and Sean Phillips), although I hope I've done enough to make it my own.
The shapes in the margins are not there for any artistic reason -- my son didn't like there being empty space on the page and so made me fill it in before he'd allow me to continue any further.
