From 'the unnamed Book Three' of my novel series, which is currently being written at a fluctuating pace. Rousoe (a troll) sits and contemplates with his newest best friend, Kenji the frona. I wanted this picture to express a sense of detachment from the rest of the world, a contained little chunk of dependence between 'human' and 'animal'. Sadness and happiness, anxiety and naivety, going hand-in-hand. Inked lines done by hand with .005 Micron black pen, coloured in Photoshop 6. Rousoe & Kenji are (C) to me.
