Lehn’s father is a professor at the college, so he actually grew up there.  I didn’t think the college would ever actually show up in comic, so I was glad when I realized I could include it here.  And I actually painted two versions of those mountains.  I did like the more lush version, but I eventually decided the arid version fit the Lodestone Mountains better.  (If you can’t tell by the name, lots of magnetic activity in the rocks there, meaning compasses and such don’t work right most of the time.)

Also, I think I’ve finally got all my tech issues sorted out.  New tablet (cintiq!), new monitor, and aside from a few hiccups with the initial setup, things seem to be working great.
