This is my sixth illustration for Christine Pope's novella, "Welcome to Skullcrusher Mountain," a fun and loopy love story which was serialized on the Dark Valentine website for Halloween. The novella is based on the cult fan favorite song “Skullcrusher Mountain” by Jonathan Coulton about a mad scientist (is there any other kind?) who falls hard for one of his victims-- although Jenna Masterson, the kidnapped reporter, is more than a match for the scientist in question.

This is from the sixth chapter, when romance at last blossoms between Jenna and Dr. Black. I was going for a 1960s romance-comic vibe in this one, but it turned out looking more 1980s than anything else. I don't mind; it seems to fit somehow.
