“Underwater Finale”, watercolor and graphite, May 2016. One of the watercolor paintings illustrating my book The Tembelaka Voyage! Here’s a spoilery excerpt of the chapter it’s from:
“I need your help, but you are all very broken,” it observed, one voice and many, the one very beautiful, and a lady’s. She was young and old, grave and bubbling, the most alien and yet mostly warmly familiar thing Jon had ever sensed. She didn’t use words so much as images that rose like bright bubbles in his mind, translating into words only on breaking.
