References: Part 5 (flipbooks)

Dear Reader,

References sometimes come in the oddest of places; the trick is to see how they apply.

Parkour, or free-running, is to my mind a modern ballet, so when I came across this elemental flipbook rendition I was completely enthralled. The nature of the hands on the paper felt like fingertip parkour! It was so right.

How to incorporate this into The Squirrel King? ... with a little tweaking I believe this can also feel like the unfolding of an ungainly map. For now, enjoy the parkour, but pretty soon I hope to share a map of our township with you :)
