I promised ages ago I would share my original spooky wooky doodles so here you are! This is a page from a notebook I had with me when I went to Oban for my dad’s birthday last Summer. We spent a fair amount of time on ferries and much smaller boats so I imagine my train of thought was boats > ships in bottles > pirates > ghost ships > mad scientist. Obviously.
Also Zelda of course, which has entire sidequests involving capturing things in bottles. I have never really gotten over the moment when the Wind Waker game made us realise that capturing fairies in bottles wasn’t fun for them. Sadface!
