This reminds me of a lucid dream--or astral projection.

Thank you! I should write the description of the story. He's glowing because he started a bad habit of snaking on fireflies and couldn't quite. He began to glow because he ate so many over the summers.

oh my gosh! How do you make your lines so smooth, kristen?
and those fireflies came out so awesome (and all the leaves make the BEST pattern)!

Thanks so much! I didn't know I made my lines so smooth, haha. Guess I just have a lot of patience/OCD. If I see a little bump in a line I'll think "no one will see that...but I'll know it's there!" and have to fix it. About the leaves, this is why I am so conflicted about entirely going digital. While doing things like the leaves is so much easier digitally as I fill one corner of the page with leaves then just copy and paste them everywhere else, a piece done on the computer will never have the exact look/feel that I like about traditional work so much. It's so weird where you start and finish a year of school. At the beginning I was really, really, really against going digital with my work, but then I realized how much more stress free digital is in the respect of being able to change the color/value system in 3 seconds, copy/paste, and the most important: the undo button! Want to work on getting better/faster with traditional over the summer so I can get back to it next year. But this is also why I like your work so much, because you use the digital medium in a way that is so perfect. Your work always has a deep, subtle glow to it and you use light outlines against darker fills in the coolest way. Coraline came out great! Have you ever read Sandman? You should if you haven't. I think it's Gaiman's best work.
