It's rare these days for me to be stricken with the true muse to draw, but a combination of things (some known to me, some not) seem to have done so considering I drew this from start to finish in essentially 24 hours. Normally I stretch illustrations over much longer unless there's some sort of crazy deadline such as the case of 'Calibano!'
Putrafactus posed an open challenge for our group of friends to try to set their "Muse" down onto paper, whether through art, prose or poetry. For me poetry would have been a cop-out, and everyone that knows me is aware of how snail-paced I am at written storytelling, so illustration was the obvious patsy.
