It's been a difficult week of adequately juggling the McLuhan essay and the final drafts of the Macmillan book. The more I work on the details, the more I worry that the options are so vast and overwhelming that I'll never be able to do 12. I've attempted the second spread at least three times, taking hours on each, and worried about everything from the characterisation to the lighting.

This was perhaps my favourite part of Wall-E. The first half of the film if a pretty touching love story of the highest calibre, but it lost me in the second half (with the exception of the fire extinguisher dance and the faulty umbrella). As it got to the end and I was sitting and cynically going, pffff, humans have no chance, the end credits roll up. The idea is pretty obvious but brilliantly executed. I've been thinking about patterns and tapestries and how they work in panoramic compositions. Then I remembered this.
