illustration is art



As the first of what, she now realises, are many figures, comes out of the fog, her hopeful greeting dies in her throat. Her already doe-like eyes become huge, and her hands fly to her mouth. She hears herself make a pathetic little ‘eep’noise. In her head she hears her shitty little brother taunting ‘Miho’s gunna die, and she said ‘eep’!’ Despite the horror flooding her already overloaded system, that last bit really pisses her off.

The first of the ‘figures’ seems to suddenly notice her, and lurches into a run, straight at her, that will bring them together in seconds. Seconds she realises will be her last.

  1. Eep yes, make sure you don’t end up looking like Walter (Margaret) Keane painting… 😉

    • Ha! Awesome, Alli, I’d never heard of Walter/Margaret Keane — I thought it might be like Walter/Wendy Carlos ( ) but, no, but just as interesting. What an ass Walter was — the court case painting scenario is straight out of fiction!
      Anyway, fear not, things at Orijinalchris are about to return spectacularly to form, a form that has very little to do with big-eyed waifs — though that is, in fact, what my newest character, Miho, is. I’ve decided my character universe needs a helpless, cute character to balance the extremely powerful ones. It needs more baddies, to, as a foil for my girls, and to really get the story going.
      Yep, I’m finally settling into the shape of my graphic novel (:
