These are some early efforts I am still working on. The best way to present them on the web, I feel, is to have you pan along. But that doesn't approach the impression you get by viewing the entire strip at once. So I've started out like that. Later I'll add more views.
The disadvantage is, they're much too small - to see them more than screen-filling, click on
BIG.
