I loved the image below, take a look at his feet, especially! And that levitating lotus position is hard to imitate.

The images from "Junks" seemed to make things coalesce for me, and I've made a sketch for the letter J that integrates Hong Kong Harbor, juggling, Justice(s), and junks from various eras...
And I like the labeled edge on this image, which makes me wonder if I can use some kind of "frame" like this to show the hand-written folder names for each image.
