Here's the print version of a commissioned panel:
Doodle done over the phone: stream-of-consciousness doodle while free-associating concepts: the core idea is there, but you can see the on-the-fly editing with the verbage happening.
This manifestation came about a couple days after the doodle, actually done while at a bar trying to explain the idea for the project, also doubled a a recomposition of elements. Following the mental thread helps to tease out more possibilities - either that or everything starts to unravel!
The color wash original included a few customized touches, such some favored titles culled from the Carl Barks archives, and a hat-tip to maritime artist Geoff Hunt.
