Murky Depths Illustration: The Longest Road in the Universe

Artwork details: two drawings in pencil. 'The Ash Room' is about 13.5 x 10.7inches and 'Growing Roses on Europa' is about 7.2 x 11.7inches, 2008.

This pair of drawings were done to illustrate the short story 'The longest road in the Universe' by C.S. MacCath. I particularly loved this story; it's compelling, touching and very strange and creepy all at once. To read it you'll have to purchase issue number 7 of Murky Depths - a quarterly anthology for which I've been doing some illustration lately.
