Does that sound professional? I exclaim my joy because despite not being a SFF artist (objectively speaking) I have always had the utmost respect for Irene, her support, and enthusiasm for the business of illustration as a whole. It was a pleasure to work with her for on the short fiction story, Crazy Me, by James Patrick Kelly, for www.tor.com.
The art in a nut shell:In the story the main character and his girlfriend witness a house burning to the ground. The main character (man) is a clinical schizophrenic, a central theme to the story.
Also, came across the original doodle that lead to this art and wanted to share. CHICKEN SCRATCH!
