I was leafing through some of my recent works, trying to decide what to post next, and this one jumped out at me. I immediately showed it to my wife (who's been having a bit of trouble tolerating the heat lately) to show her that she's not alone. Yeesh, the summer heat malaise is in full swing, init? She remarked that at least my hairy heat sufferer above had a flower in their hair. I prefer to think of it as kind of a "heat tumor", if you will. A bright swirly orb of pain, much like the July sun here in Kansas.
Heh, considering these recurring red and orange backgrounds, I might be on the verge of a new series/style. Maybe I'll call it heat stroke in keeping with the bodily ailment theme that I started with nose bleed. We'll see.
