Adrian is surprised by the sudden appearance of Telgar’s wife Marra.
They would have invited her but they just didn’t know where in the wilderness to send a pigeon or imp 😛
It can sometimes take me over 8 hours to do just one page, and that is a generously low estimate. One of the pages took me 14 hours to do. It might not look it on the final showing but there are layouts, sketch ups, re working, redrawing and then when I have things laid out like I want I then put pencil to paper and then go back over with ink. The text I add in a graphics editor because at the size I draw I get shaky with a quill at that size. I am 49 after all 😛 (at least at the time of this posting)
