Original Art Sundays #81: Surrealist Cowgirls, it does this, p. 3

The next page of A Private Myth sits awaiting a scan. I sit waiting for the blizzard to stop so's I can go do the scan.
My friend Seamus told me a of cheap, reliable large-bed scanner. When I have the ready funds, it seems a worthwhile investment. Until then, I'll keep slogging away with remote access. It has its frustrations, but it's short term pragmatic.
Meanwhile, here's another page of the Surrealist Cowgirls adventure. This one has the rather obvious pun I alluded to in the last SC post!
A couple nice Bode' references on this page, in the bottom tier. The lizard, of course, the odd little bird on the branch, and the use of environment as frame in the last panel, a device of Vaughn's I particularly like.
This was great fun to draw, using stipple, a technique I revere but rarely use. Kay's design is inspired by pointillism, of course, which makes drawing her in this technique a solid plot device, as well as an excuse to keep my hand in on this technique, mastered by the great Howard Cruse.

Next: the next scanned page of A Private Myth.
I hope my readers are enjoying my bouncing around between three storylines! If you've been around here a while, you know they DO get completed!
