Vanessa Davis did this illustration for us months ago, and then the story got pushed to November for some reason. But then today’s story wasn’t ready in time, so at the last minute, the editors swapped this one in. I’m so glad it’s finally up!
I really liked the preliminary sketch for this and couldn’t imagine how the final illustration would improve on it. Well, I guess I’m just not very imaginative, because it improved a lot. You can see the complete piece on the story page. It’ll probably get knocked out of the main home page slot tomorrow, unfortunately.
