  2. Thank you Terresa, this one was actually very difficult for me to get a handle on visually. At times, it is easy to give in to the urge to be too literal with these illustrations and to simply depict what is actually happening. that's not what I want to do, and if I was reading an illustrated novel, it's not really what I'd want to see. This one came to be out of a sense of frustration, as I just turned off my mind, stopped thinking, and let the pens do the work. In the end, I was blissfully pleased with what I had made.
