Hooper and the shark by acarabet Hooper and the shark by acarabet
The second book illustration for Jaws. This one of Hooper and the shark as it attacks him in the shark cage. Had to stitch this one. You can probably tell. Gouache, thanks Doney.

In Benchley's novel, the Hooper character is killed at this point of the story. Not sure why that was changed for the film.

Either way, great work here by acarabet!

Hooper's story was vastly different in the book. He goes on to have an affair with Brody's wife and probably the reason for his death in the novel. Speilberg originally had Hooper getting the business end of 'ol Bruce, but changed the ending with Dryfuss being so likable.

"I think we need a better Cage, A LOT Better...!"

This is what you get when you have Adam Savage build your 'Shark Cage'... from recycled materials and baseing it off a movie design that said nothing to which it was made of... Also, the fact that he NEVER built anything like this before... made him Perfect/Most 'Logical' choice... He's built all kinds of 'other'..."things".

Ever heard of Adam Savage? Ever heard/seen the Myth Busters? You'd get it then.

Adam once built a shark cage from watching 'Jaws' and it was too wide and let in a smaller shark...
