Shelly's Story: The Picture

Gosh, "Shelly's Story" is already a year and a half old. So it was a seriously belated decision when I commissioned Kabuki Katze recently to do a companion picture for it. But the logic behind that decision will become clear...I hope.

Kabuki did a masterful job in turning back the clock on Shelly's distinctive style, to find where she might have been when she first arrived in Major City. And if you get a THAT GIRL/MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW vibe from this pic, well, that's purely intentional. Also, I would like to point out the sterling work on the USAF duffle bag Shelly carries. Little details!

By golly, look at that, this piece is on deviantArt, too!

I hope for the grand reveal of the logic behind everything too! . . . but for now, I'm content with having a shweet new picture of Shelly around to make me smile.

We shall see what the year holds! But yes, the picture is reward in itself!
