Shaenon: This is so awesome. Christina “Delphina” Major, creator of Sombulus, was inspired by the August swimsuit wallpaper to draw this incredible scene. You can see a larger version, with additional explanation, at Christina’s DeviantArt site, where you can learn, for example, that Tigerlily’s jet ski is named the SS Freefunk Wavejammer. Thanks so much, Christina!

Channing: OMIGOSH SWEETHEART FELL OFF HER SURFBOARD THAT IS SO ADORABLE. I don’t know why. It’s probably pretty distressing for her, but then again, Sweetheart is adorable when distressed. Yes, that’s right, here at “Skin Horse” we abuse cartoon dogs for your enjoyment. I don’t know what this says about us, or rather “me”, because most of the Sweetheart-abuse seems to comes from my writing quarter.

My own concerns notwithstanding, this is just lovely. Unity obviously wins the panel, deviating from her usual strategy of “finding animal and making hat out of it” to the slightly different but obviously related “finding animal and making surfboard out of it”.
