I was on seabus, on the way to the comic jam I think. I also think that someone was sitting near me, possibly watching, so as I was doing this first drawing, there was some element of performing for them. The image was just something that had been in my head, the idea of a little house on top of a skyscraper. You sometimes see this sort of arrangement on smaller buildings in Vancouver, where the penthouse of a three story building is like a little house on top there.
The second panel is this circle of rocks and trees I pass if I walk up this particular alley. I like that alley, it has some strange features in it. There is pleasing moss on the concrete wall above this barren patch of dirt.
