There is a layer in this page called “I thought I was done drawing bookshelves when I finished chapter 1 of Absinthe”. It contains abstracted books, cut and paste from that comic.
“Never draw anything you can copy, never copy anything you can trace, never trace anything you can cut out and paste up.” – Wally Wood
Also, Mattie’s shape is inspired by some of the work of master photomanipulator J. K. Potter, most specifically his portrait of Lydia Lunch.

I came thiiiiis close to drawing using a lady sharkbot I drew late in 2010! But mermaid felt better. And then harmonized oh so well with Barrett’s tattoo…!
I just noticed Barrett2’s blue dialogue in Chapter 1 and Barrett3’s blue dialogue here.
I wonder if Barrett1 knows what he is doing. And when Rita1 will find out.
