M John Harrisson: No Escape (quote) via @fragmad
“In the end you have to judge reality as the place where there are consequences. Anything else is willful and childish. Anything else is self-induced blindness, denial of the consequence of being alive, which is that you’ll die. You know you’re alive. My problem with cyberpunks is when they ask, ‘How do you know?’ Well, you put your hand down in front of a taxi. See how you feel with your hand under the wheel, see how well you use a keyboard afterwards; then tell me stuff about, ‘I don’t know whether it’s real or not.’ I don’t want to live in models, fictions, possibilities, alternate realities or multiverses: that’s for kiddies. I want to live and die as a human being in what is.”

There is more pretty and harrowing inspiration to be found over at Will Ellwood’s blog. go there.
Foxt Day 1
Uploaded the thumbnails and a headshot. They aren’t pretty, and are pretty much illegible to anyone but me and Will.
In order to get the ‘simple view’ out of my head, I drew every character that was stated in the script roughly where they should be. (there are three characters) the next half hour will be used for ‘fancy pants angles and visual gimmicks’ research.
I’ll post those when done.
Foxt Night 1 (illo)
Dear Will Ellwood sent me a short story ‘Foxt’ to draw as a comic. Its very sweet and zen-like.
The kind of story that takes your hand and shows you the road.
And when you realize you’re alone, you’ve already reached the end.
I hope I can do it justice.
Starting off silly takes the edge off nerves:
