The girl with the shock of white hair checks her watch again...
PERELIA QUINN fidgets, waiting for her mark. Capella Block’s residents rush around her, snaking between stacks of garbage and freestanding utility pylons. Craning her neck she can see the wide mouth of the West vehicle entrance. A single-carry takes the corner too fast, it’s rimless wheels chirping across the pavement. It slams to a stop in front of a noodle-shop, and the driver tumbles out into the street. Pretending to yawn, PERELIA raises a wired microphone to her lips, concealed neatly in her palm.
He’s back. He’s had more to drink.
You don’t say? How’s that poor bastard even standing?
The man in the street turns sharply and tumbles over his own feet. Falling to his knees he lets out a viscous curse before lurching upright again.
He’s not, really. What do you want me to do?
Sober him up. The quick way.

Scrap Hunting the Outskirts, the Snow Sisters consider their next meal...
HALCYONE and CORILLA SNOW are hunting for scrap-metal.
Feeding times soon. What are you going to say?
Same as always. If we deserved better food, we’d be shown the way.
A siren sounds in the distance. The sisters stop to listen for a moment.
How long you think that’s going to work?
I drew this late last year and am only now getting around to coloring it. I labored over what to do with the gizmo behind him; I’m still thinking about going in and fleshing out the details of that structure a bit more. Right now it sort of looks like it has googly-eyes. Why the near-monotone green? It was St. Patrick’s Day. Graphite sketch with Adobe Photoshop colors ~ 200 minutes

Notes and sketches from a few talks I attended this spring. I also blew past my 31st birthday, as that fancy gentleman below mentions.
I like the robot man with the sweet mullet – I used a very skinny ink pen (.005) that almost immediately started leaking all over the place when I sat down to wait for Citizen Kane to start at our local historical theatre. Also it was brand new, I have no backup, and so I’ll be drawing with graphite tomorrow to see if I can capture a similar look. ~ 60 minutes
Some moleskine sketchup I started earlier this month. ~ 80 minutes
Decided to follow through and actually color this one. Graphite and Photoshop ~ 200 minutes
