  My thoughts on the passing of Robin Williams?  Well, gee... I don't know if I thought anything at all.  It's difficult to even contemplate.  He was never a person to me...  I wasn't around to see his rise to power, or I was too young to recognize a time before he came into the public consciousness.  He was just always sort of there.  Not a person, a comedian, an actor, or a celebrity.  Not to me.

  He was a force of nature... no, more than that.  Or maybe less.  More subtle than a force.  Simply a part of the world at large as I became aware of it, like the wind, or clouds, or windows, or paint, or TV, or politics, or junk food.  I can't quite grasp the absence of something so intrinsic to the universe as I know it.

  It's as though someone told me that cold water no longer exists.  The very idea is preposterous, and I'm tempted to dismiss the news altogether.  I can mourn for a gifted artist who was driven to a sad end, I can send my heartfelt condolences to his friends and loved ones and mean it, but they knew a human being... the Robin Williams I knew will always be a face in space with a big goofy grin.

I spent six years learning at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia, and have been publishing my webcomic (Zebra Girl) since 2000. I don't drink, smoke, eat meat, or do drugs, and yet I remain worthy of pity. Then again, that might go without saying.

I've been wondering something about Zandra for a while now, and especially after that scene w/ her and that vampire guy in the dark......^^;......is Zandra a Succubus, or could she be considered to be one? ^^;

(At least she never had any Klondike Bars! ^^;)

Only recently have I discovered your work and it's amazing.

Though I do have a question regarding Zandra. Does she wish to live in peace with humans or take them over?

  Thank you, LunaHarker!  It's good to meet you.
  Regarding Zandra, I think I'll keep her motivations a secret for right now.  Don't worry, it'll become clear eventually, but for right now I want for there to be a bit of uncertainty.

Has letting all those vampires drink her blood been screwing with her head, or is she really an uncaring, indefensible jerk at this point? There's that "reign of terror" remark, and now she appears to be letting her best friend be eaten.

Believe me, I'd love to answer every one of those questions, but I'm afraid I'll have to leave you in suspense for a while longer.  Don't worry, all will be revealed before too long.

Happy Halloween!

I thought of something funny - what if they were looking for Zandra and thought they found her, but it turns out to be just a normal girl in a Zandra costume, and then they look and see there's a contest where all these girls have dressed up to look like her! :XD:

After all, what better way to hide a zebra than in a herd of zebras, right? ^^;
