dreams of heads falling off

i've been working on this for so long in some form or another that i don't really have anything left to say about it. other than i really like drawing deserts and i'm happy i'm working on a comic that takes place in mostly desert. and i guess also that i dedicate this to Salem; it was the piece i was working on and struggling the most with while she was sick and i lost her.

finally saw Kiki's Delivery Service for the first time yesterday (yes, i know, what kind of studio Ghibli/Miyazaki fan am i?).  it was really great, as expected. probably in my top favorite Miyazaki films now, after Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away. i love the character of Kiki so much, and related to her maybe a little more than i'd like to admit, heheh. and i love the way Studio Ghibli does those super-stylized, cute cats.
