There are always details that I most possibly can just skip to save time and energy, but those details make all the difference. Of course, I wanted to have Jack trapped in this classic, Houdini-like manner with the chamber, etc., but the locks look almost like a stone eye, which, by the way, is one of the symbols that stand for the villain Perout, and his philosophies. You can see traces of it here and there in the architecture of Grandville, but they are all just sneaked in there quietly, so the reader can be subconscious about it. Clouds, of course, are another symbol of Perout, because they stand for prosperity and the "line of progress" that he believes in, and his wig also mimics a cloud.
In this montage, Jacks is doing everything in his power to try to thwart the scientific inventions that are all invented by the scientists of this city. It's fun trying to think up just WHAT LIMITATIONS Jack has, as opposed to being an apparently all-powerful creature.
