Hm. The design balannce is not quite right.... But I've worked on it long enough, so it's done!

Just beautiful, all the pale blue and gray, plus the repeated motief of the fan and compass rose.

well, bless you for seeing that!
You remember Hutch really was a Sea Scout--I learned ALL about them... Ha. The places fandom take you, eh? :)

Yes, he really was a sea scout. I recall some online conversation where someone said he was simply joking. And I thought, no he wasn't! Lake Superior is as big as a small sea, and he went sailing--with the Sea scouts.

Exactly! The episode's writers didn't seem to know Duluth was on a Great Lake when they make it sound like a joke ("it wasn't easy"):
the Sea Scouts is just a normal branch of the Boy Scouts there---there's no reason he'd be joking.

I love all the different elements and the feeling of space and cool air in this one - he looks like his mind is so far away from the suffocating California heatwave.

Yay! The elements don't hang together visually like I wanted them to, but I'm glad they convey the feeling of space and cool air nevertheless.

I'm really intrigued by Hutch's Duluth youth. I think he was glad to leave it but must sometimes be homesick in hot smoggy CA...

A friend of mine who grew up in Duluth (pre-global warming) said she never even owned a pair of shorts until she moved to Mpls.

P.S. I posted a simplified, tighter version of this moodboard:

It's a better composition so I like it better in some ways, but it's got less pictures, and Hutch should have ALL THE PICTURES! :)
