Seabrook chapter portraits

The first two portraits of William Seabrook that I'll be using as chapter title pages in the book I'm doing. I'm set to get back to drawing again as the Happy Stories About Well-Adjusted People book design is done. The next chapter is set in Haiti. Seabrook's book Adventures in Arabia is a best-seller and he doesn't rest, but decides to write a book about voodoo and ends up living in Haiti with a voodoo priestess, Mama Celie for a couple of years. The book that comes out of Haiti, The Magic Island eventually will become the Bela Lugosi film White Zombie. As I have been telling anyone who will listen, Old Seabrook's claim to fame is that he is credited with introducing the word zombie to the English language.
