Saturday Sketch: Classic S'ym

Continuing the Magik set, here we have a classic version of the demon S'ym.  He acts as Belasco's main muscle in Limbo until the end of the limited series.  It was not until recently that I found out that S'ym's original conception was a tip of the hat to comics creator Dave Sim.  It had never occurred to me before I began doing research for this piece that visually S'ym is Cerebus.

Featured Creature: Reunion at the Merrimon Library Part IX, Deidre's Warning

Reunion at the 
Merrimon Library:
Part IX, 
Deidre's Warning

Alan fought to open his eyes.  He was warm and comfortable and sedated within ease.  He felt as though his brain were wrapped tight in a thick comforter.  There was a warm and gentle pressure against his palm.  He woke to someone holding his hand.  When he finally got his eyes to open he struggled to focus on the figure at his side.  It was Deidre.  He squinted into wakefulness and offered a weak smile.  Deidre smiled back.


"Hi yourself."  She leaned in closer and rested her other hand on his forearm.  They sat silently for a moment and enjoyed a quiet reunion.  They both tried to hold back, but soon there were tears.  They held on to each other in the silence for a long while.

"I came as quickly as I could.Her eyes were glassy.  He could tell she had not slept in some time.

"How long have I been out?"

"Two days."

From the Archives: Shadowed Face

Here we have an overworked sharpie sketch.  I think the original inspiration for this was an image of Robert Plant from back in the day.  I enjoy the shadows here, but I feel like it would have been more successful if it were a bit looser.
