Painting of Ruby June and Charter Jack Examining the Map

Here we have Charter Jack showing Ruby June the map the Deep Ones were after, the one that shows the location of the sunken temple and the mysterious Voice of the Sea.  Good thing they didn’t know to look in the hollow oar!  That Charter Jack is a clever one.

I really wanted to draw out more of the map but remembered I needed a place for the text.  This is a children’s book after all.  I had a tendency to forget all about that as I was working.  Luckily on this one I remembered in time to avoid putting a lot of detail in the space I left for the text.
