Smithson Thus Far... ·


Shaenon: You thought last week's cast pic by Dirk Tiede was awesome? Well, it was. But so is this Oz-themed piece by my dear friend Jason Plumly Thompson! (Note: Jason's middle name is not actually "Plumly.") I think this might be my favorite drawing of Sweetheart ever. Also, I'm fascinated that everyone puts Dr. Lee in the cast pics even though she's been absent from the strip for the better part of a year now. All will fall before her tsundere-style magnetism!

Jason's graphic novel King of RPGs is out from Del Rey in January. And, yes, that's me modeling twelve-sided-die jewelry on the King of RPGs blog. Also keep an eye out for the upcoming graphic-novel collection of Jason's classic adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath.

Channing: Yeah, everybody thinks Dr. Lee is part of the core cast. You poor, poor, deluded boogers.

Anyway! Jason T. here brings his wonderfully biological style to our characters. I am so very happy to have him amongst our fan-art stable. And massive congratulations on the upcoming books!

Shaenon: Don't listen to Jeffrey. I'm totally into Dr. Lee and will seek out any excuse to bring her back. She's my second-favorite character in the strip.

Timothy Whitcomb (hroar) says: I always really liked Dr. Lee, and was sorry she did show  up again. However, I am very pleased she has shown up in these other bits of work.
James Rice (jhrice) says: If Dr. Lee is your second favorite, which character is your favorite?
Joyce Melton (halfelven) says:

Why is the feed different from the pic here? Interesting...

The sketches are nice and so is this more finished pic.

Dr. Lee is the cute evil one, bad girls are more fun. 

Dave Van Domelen (dvandom) says: Is this the Mock Man one, or a new Kadath?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Huh ... and I just did a "Wizard of Oz" song yesterday.  Back to the same well again ... 

(TUNE: "We're Off To See The Wizard", Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg)

We're ...
On the secret project,
The project that's known as Skin Horse!
The government
This team has sent,
And we're here to help, of course!
With Wilkin and Sweetheart and Unity,
Moustachio and Dr. Lee,
We see, we see, we see, we see, we seeeeeee ...
How stylin' a guy in a dress can be!
(Tweedle-dee-deedle-dee-dee!  Hee hee!)
We're on the secret project,
The project that's known as Skin Horse!

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:
Argh... fixed the image issue.
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: ... I knew someone was going to do this sooner or later. I just knew it.
chic geek (onechicgeek) says: Gavotte holding up the banner is a nice touch. Cool art!
John Breckenridge (jbrecken) says:

I like how the art style is a cross between how the characters are usually drawn and the original Oz illustrations, although I think Unity would be better cosplaying as the Patchwork Girl, since Ozma and Tiktok are also from later books in the series.

Dirk Tiede (dirktiede) says:

Great pic by Jason!  

Also, in my defense, I was going for a movie poster of "I Can Fly", thus Dr. Lee was included in a guest starring role. Though, I would have no complaints if she were to become a recurring character, Lupin Madblood style. 

Lafing Cat (lafing_cat) says: So I see this image is named "sh_thompson_small.jpg", might there be a "sh_thompson_large" somewhere?
Dirk Tiede (dirktiede) says: Most likely on Shaenon's personal HD.
