I hope everyone of you who's into it is enjoying a safe and happy 4th and can still count to 20 on your digits; in honor of the red, white and blue of the ol' Stars and Stripes I present to you a sketch, newly in the hands of some very generous A* supporters, as their due reward for supporting the comic through Patreon in May:

There we have my usual red (British quinacridone magenta), white (French 300 lb "bright white" watercolor paper), and (British ultramarine) blue, plus (Japanese) pencil stripes and, if you squint and imagine hard enough, (interplanetary corporate??) stars out through that little round portal. So apparently A* is really the most patriotic American webcomic around, pretty much! Yeah!

I had meant the figure to be a Selenis but it came out with kind of a different look and I'm not sure about the costume but I'm thinking this could maybe be one of Selenis' past lives that we haven't explored yet, and I think the costume may have been influenced by the stories of the (often) decadent Lords of the Instrumentality I've been reading about in this very odd collection of short stories that a reader sent to me, which I will probably have a little more to say about in the future.

Come to think of it, I still have a bunch to say about another series of books another reader has sent me, too! I'd thought I'd get that done a few days ago but then I spent all night agonizing over gamma adjustment instead. : P
