In the Shadows of the Sunlit World

Part 2 of Ovoyyamar is lurking out in the shadows...

Until it strikes I highly recommend staring into the abyss that is Luminism.  There are a lot of amazing 19th century American landscape artists and their works that I have found very inspiring while working on this comic.  I could stare into John Frederick Kensett's 'Lake George' forever I think.  One random day someone will say "Hey, where did Alan go?" Then they'd look into the painting and see me floating off to the far shore before disappearing into the mysterious mountains.  To my mind there is something very quietly ominous concealed in a lot of those paintings.  This is basically what is happening in my head whenever I look at this stuff.  You'll find what you feel I guess.  That's art for you.
