The New Frontier

In the beginning, there were waves. Small ones at first, lapping gently against the shores of the world.

Inktober 2019: Day 16 – Wild

“Liar, cheat, hustler — all these words and more are used to describe and name this creature. It has taken quite a liking to our card games, but it doesn’t understand fair play at all. It’s a wonder why anyone is still willing to deal it in, let alone bet their lives on it…”
