Squid for lunch

Here’s a spread from Pirates Go To School.  The verse describes a pirate’s lunch as slimy squid and crackers for their parrots—in the thumbnail sketch I drew squid on a cracker.  The art director asked me to show a pirate eating the squid and the parrot eating a cracker, as you see in the tight sketch.  The slideshow is the painting in progress.  Notice I extended the pirate’s arm so the parrot wouldn’t be in the spread’s gutter.
