The illustrations tell a story, of course, but each illustration is a story in and of itself. Imagine though that you only get to see every fifth or every tenth illustration. There is a story there, you can be sure, but the scenes between the scenes you see are a matter of forensic work, of archaeological anthropology. Imagination, guesswork, deduction and pretense.
The story is in my head, so at least theoretically I know it. I draw the illustrations sequentially. The gaps in the story are synaptic. What, other than the projection of time, transforms one image into the next? Is it a rational process, an artistic segue, something merely chemical in nature? What if the transformations are a process of illness or disease? I hear that happens.
What then? What is the story?

What? No graphical preview of sound files? For shame!
