So this is me drawing from a few different sources that have cropped up in my life as of late.
One, I’ve recently been introducing my roommate to the twisted world of H.P. Lovecraft.
Two, I recently found myself contemplating quantum physics and realizing how the theories within it seem to blur the lines between reality and science fiction.
Three, ChaosLife, the best comic strip on the interwebz, recently posted this comic: http://chaoslife.findchaos.com/kitten-kerfuffle and the mention of a cat with ten mouths and one eye made me instantly think of the Old Ones mythos.
Honest mistake. It could happen to anyone.
And there’s your movie!
Been working on some characters for a webcomic or strip. Meet Bunny and Snake.
A nature spirit, his kind was born of the dancing winds. He’s a sly thinker, always working an angle that will either get him into trouble or out of it. Though he is a charming individual, a bit of a womanizer, he always seems to have trouble courting Sylvia Snake (one of the few women who’ve known him long enough to not fall for his tricks).
A spirit of medicine, she carries pouches full of ingredients (herbs, spices, rare plants and dried berries) that she mixes to form dusts. Her kind born of the bending rivers that cross the land, she is a traveler by nature, spreading seeds or helping when she spies someone sick or in pain. However, if cornered by those seeking to take her medicines when they are not ill so they may profit from it, she will defend herself with a bite. Though deadly to mortals, the bite has a more inebriating effect on spiritfolk (as Jack has learned on multiple occasions).
Certainly more to come…
This is Sheena, a Spirit of Reflections. She can only exist in reflections within a certain distance of her mirror, but never ever leave her side of the looking glass. A reflection spirit is born when two reflective surfaces (usually mirrors) are placed facing each other, creating the infinite hallway. A spirit (soul of a deceased person) will walk into that hallway, thinking it to be the tunnel to eternity, and become trapped once the mirrors are taken apart.
Sheena got lost in the Infinite Hallway so long ago, she has forgotten any time before her imprisonment. She still dreams of meadows and laughter, but always awakens cold and alone in her prison.
