Un-Nerving Pencil!

I have done many small cartoons/illustrations for print before, but never have I been given  a full two page spread to illustrate, until recently.This story, written by Jess Bergman, tells the tale of Harriet Cole. Harriet was a maid/washwoman in the late 1800's who donated her body to science. Dr. Rufus Weaver was, using her donated corpse, able to accurately separate her nervous system from the rest of her, for the first time ever. Back then it was a scientific miracle. These days, it is still on display, but is mostly seen as a creepy thing in a case. 

A small portion of the comic was separated (much like her nervous system...ehhh folks?)  for the cover.

come see more, at the paint pit!
