Jonathan Livingston Seagull

Have decided to look at the letter 'J' and how it relates to Jonathan Livingston Seagull's breakthough moment where on the cusp of giving up, realises that to get faster, he needs shorter wings.

"He brought his forewings tightly into his body, left only the narrow swept daggers of his wingtips extended into the wind, and fell into a vertical dive"

The form of the wing in this state kind of resembles a 'J' so that's where i'm going with this. I want to attempt to convey speed somehow too but feel that although it is an important part of Jonathan Livingston Seagull (he loves speed), it might be more effective to drop it and look purely at the form. Time will tell :)

Ready to start sketching now. To be cont'd…
