You’re alone in an alley and the vermin of the seedy underbelly emerge from the cracks and crevices, they’ve chosen you as the unassuming victim. You drop the contents in your arms, your precious papers scatter, you scream, and turn to run. There’s nowhere to go, your path is blocked in all directions and miasmatic darkness has engulfed you. You’re sure this is it, you're going to meet your maker and there is no hope. “Yeah,” you think to yourself, “This pretty much sums up the life of a fledgling illustrator.” The world that could sustain your creative success seems overwhelming and more terrifying than a giant crocodilian man-beast. You shudder in defeat and call to the heavens for a sign. Miraculously a ray of hope appears. A shining green letter L on the silvery clouds above. Is it a vigilante crime fighter?
