Thumbnail planning sketches
One of the locations in the book is a village where cormorants are still used as a method of fishing. They wear a collar around their necks that prevent them from swallowing their catch which they bring back to the boat. While it’s not mentioned in the text, it’s such a cool detail and the cormorants are so interesting looking that I’d love to include it in one of the illustrations. I just need to figure out how and if it’ll work or not. If not, they might make an appearance in the endpapers instead.
