The Pit (work in progress)

pop 08 and 09

Work continues on “People of the Pit” despite interruptions for other projects and life stuff. According to Merritt’s story, the protagonist discovers a gigantic pit in the wilderness… the bottom of which hides an ancient civilization. My drawing probably doesn’t make the pit big enough — “Imagine the Grand Canyon five times as wide with the bottom dropped out.” In my defense, I wanted to make the narrator visible in the frame (there he is in the lower left hand corner)… if I had made the canyon any bigger, I fear he would have just been a dot when this finally gets printed.

I’ve never done such a text-heavy thing before… my hands are tired from all the lettering.
