THINGS ARE AFOOT. With strategically-placed censors, but c’est la vie.I spent way too much time looking at other illustrators’ works for this (as opposed to actually getting work done, oops), but sometimes you just have to spend an hour or two swearing loudly about how beautiful Berni Wrightson’s illustrations from Frankenstein are, okay?  Okay.(The reference dump/pinterest board will go live if/when this piece gets finished, for those interested!)

Illustration for Our Fair City: Season Five, Episode Nine (A Single Twisted Spoke)

This makes three for three things I’ve done for OFC that are basically just me drawing lots and lots of plants.  I’m not sure how this happened…!

I got a new day job recently and it is delightfully corporate and boring.  (Compared to my last job and the past eight years I’ve worked in hellish retail, it’s A HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF.)

I am feeling the fanciest today because I am running around at the office being important, just because I am not working from home and sitting around in my underwear, as I usually do.

I actually finished this comic quiiiiite a while ago, but I finally remembered to get this posted!  My friends at Our Fair City do regular comic anthologies now on top of the whole awesome podcast thing, so I was super honored to be apart of this collection.  Especially when I got to work on this story that David Rheinstrom (OFC writer, friend, most excellent human being) wrote.

So!  Here it is: “Greenhouse Blues”!  It’s got romance!  Mystery!  Suspense!  Algae!  We also had the strange honor of being the one story in the whole anthology with an unambiguously optimistic ending, so…hooray!

Even though I’m posting this here, you should really go purchase the entire anthology here—including an instant PDF download for the sweet, low price of 99 cents.  It has so many good things in there, you guys.  If you don’t get a copy, you’re just missing out.
