Original Art Sundays # 50: Tranny Towers, p. 1

The next page of A Private Myth is proving much more challenging than I anticipated, especially since it's a relatively simple page. But it's a very emotional page, and that's bogging me down a tad.
But as the work is important to me (and I already have too many pages that I don't see as up to standard), and as it will be part of the fall faculty show at MCAD, I have elected to post a Tranny Towers page in lieu of newer work.
Looking at these now, I find the proportions a bit troublesome, but am much happier with them now than I was at the time. It also allows me to get my head back into the place I was at artistically at that time, and work on overcoming the block I've developed about backgrounds since doing these. While the backgrounds on these aren't spectacular, they work with the pages, especially as the narrative evolves, and I need to get back to that.
This is the first Tranny Towers strip, as originally presented in Lavender magazine in 1994-95.
