Sneak peek into Strumpet 2

The contributor list for Strumpet 2 is more or less sorted now, and the first pictures, ideas and scripts are starting to fall into my inbox (lucky me!). I just had to share these beautiful sketches by Kripa Joshi, creator of the inimitable and gorgeous Miss Moti.

Because Kripa's style is so elegant and finished, I was fascinated to see an early stage in the design process -- that and I just loved Miss Moti's space dog!
Look out for more from my editorial inbox soon - Jeremy
