I had such a love-hate relationship with this page. I re-drew it several times until I came up with something I was happy with. Here’s an early sketch and 2 drawings that could have been the final, had I not went straight back to square one with a whole new composition. Through it all, Elias has always remained in his underpants, ladle in one hand and cane in the other.

For those of you wondering why ‘E’ isn’t up yet, all I can say is I’m working on it. Every so often I step back from it and ask myself “why isn’t this done yet?” and work on it a little more. It’s coming.
