Panels 4 and 5 are based on the Lane Reading Room in Green Library.
The main structure of the Academy in panel 3 is probably a defunct government building. This is a generic BKS government building that was probably pre-fabricated or something. It shows up a couple times, but I don’t remember if I’ve posted any of the pics… It in turn is very loosely based off of an old elementary school BKS “map” with a building labeled “Keno’s Pinball Palace”… or something like that.
It was about 9 last night and I said to my brother something on the lines of “darn, I have to wake up early to go to work tomorrow”. And then he said something like “oh, but it’s Labor Day tomorrow”.
This is the first time in a long time that a vacation day has actually caught me off guard like that. I was genuinely like “holy shit another day of weekend”, and vowed to dedicated it to this painting that has been slowly making its way down the road to completion (maybe 20 percent right now). So far that hasn’t really happened. And now that J’s updated, this is just another distraction.
But anyway, I have a new phone. It’s not Dell Aero.
