A piece I did last year for the anthology novel This Is How You Die: Stories of the Inscrutable, Infallible, Inescapable Machine of Death
. It's the second in the MoD series of anthologies, a collection of short stories by a range of excellent authors (each accompanied by an excellent illustrator) about a machine that will tell you, in very simple terms, exactly what it is that will end your life. It's not always clear, but it's always correct.

, and you'll understand.
This particular story is about a woman working at a call center for customers of the Machine. Though she has never tried the Machine herself, she spends her days surrounded by its effects, and it's beginning to get to her. Pretty good stuff! The book hit the shelves July 16th, and is available everywhere worth a damn.
Illustrated in PS CS5 on ye olde Cintiq 21UX, I think I had a harder time thinking up things to put on the cards than I did painting the character.
