Amanda has yet to make the Sparkly Eyes work on Lillian.

If you don’t already read Jade Griffin and Trevor Black’s webcomic Shards, today is a great day to start! I’ve been informed that Selkie is making a background cameo in today’s strip. My little girl’s traveling the world!

I got the idea for Hamud while watching news footage of the revolution and riots in Egypt this past winter, following the regime change. I don't mean to suggest this as his in-story origin, but it is his real-world inspiration. If that makes sense. Lillian's qi pao was designed after a few google searches. I love asymmetrical clothing designs, and I wanted something different from the kimonos she wore as the last two outfits we saw.
