Lighthouse development sketches

Here is a small selection of the sketchbook work I've done to get the lighthouse setting straight in my mind. Right now I'm finally putting the characters and environments to good use and rough storyboarding. It's interesting how things develop as you progress through all the stages of the book. Obviously things which have been hazy in my mind (how rooms look, the exact geography of the island...etc) now have to become more defined while other 'fixed' elements are evolving into something slightly different. It's great that a story you've grown sick of reading and rereading can still throw out surprises.
