Stormalong Harbor


This is an early version of Stormalong harbor, the strange dock city that houses one of my favorite cartoons. It's a perfect mix of surreal humor and pirates, and it feeds my love of craggy, seaside villages (see also Sweethaven and Apalachecola). Also, it's named after AB Stormalong, one of my favorites of the American mythological figures.

As soon as I saw that I thought, "Oh! Sweet Haven! God must love us!"

Definitely an inspiration.

I want to go there and climb the craggy steps and smell the fish rot smell and quaff the bitter drink! Be careful on your feet there, you might get a splinter!
