Allison Morris, whose parents gave her no middle name. Also known as Death. I felt like doing a spoof/humor story on Death - taking some of the cliches and twisting them a bit - and Al's what I came up with. She died three years ago, and was 'promoted' by her bosses to the position of Grim Reaper, which sort of put a kink in her plans to become a lawyer. So now she collects troublesome souls, working part-time in a used bookstore out in the Mohave - up until she meets a soul that her scythe can't take. The scythe, for the record, forms out of smoke whenever Al commands. As (hopefully) can be seen here. Drawn in mechanical pencil, then scanned and colored with a combination of OpenCanvas and Paint Pro. Some photo references used. The background is a compliation of a few photos I took of a smoky campfire and a tree. February 25th, 2007.
