These work-in-progress photos are from my latest series, "Here There Be." While working on illustrations for my husband's novel, I became fascinated with maps from the 16th and 17th centuries. Then I read news reports about the first photos ever taken of a fringed shark, and got chill bumps over how much it resembled the sea serpents in old maps. I began designing the series to refer to creatures from the maps, as well as my version of the recently discovered "sea beast."
