All of these illustrations were created to be interspersed throughout the prose. In hindsight they look a lot better panelled together like this as if they were comic pages since the composition & framing conventions for these images just work so well together even if they make absolutely no sense as a continuous narrative.
Its almost like this story would do really well in some sort of visual medium hmm…
I’ll have to think on that another time.
[For clarity’s sake: I’m making this post in 2021 but it is dated 2016 because this is when these drawings were physically illustrated]
