    Hi Ridge - thanks for your patience.

    Okay - first immediate impression of your thumbnails is that you're not yet thinking quite big enough in terms of the 'What If Metropolis' - i.e. it would be good to see some 'city-sized' ideas being worked out. That said, I like some of those pencil thumbnails - which have the quality of exploded diagrams almost.

    There's something monumental about Hepworth's sculptures, so I think it might be useful to look at some architects too who work in organic forms - to give you more courage in terms of upscaling Hepworth's forms; so

    and also:

    Your thumbnails tend to be treating your Hepworth forms as stand-alone buildings - as opposed to thinking more about Hepworth designing a city, so it would be good to see you thinking bigger.

    The other general issue is to do with your blog etc; you need to get your reviews on your blog, and likewise update with everything else. You need to get a daily blogging habit, Ridge - and make it a routine part of your project management - getting everything up and labelled and organised. More generally still, I think you need to up your output and be more productive.

    Re. the travelogue; it's still a bit vague maybe? You'll need to get into the nitty-gritty of those structures etc. to give yourself a bit more info; for example, key buildings and their purpose etc - anything to help you thumbnail more productively.
