The Miscellaneous Spirits by MO-ffie The Miscellaneous Spirits by MO-ffie
Lone comic page I came up with after doodling this little thing on a spare piece of paper [link]

A girl dips her hand into the Grand Canal in Venice, unaware that she is attracting the attention of the ladies and gentlemen that lurk beneath the waves.

The middle panel is in the vague shape of a Venetian bridge.
The writing at the bottom is a shameless mutilation of a quote by John Ruskin on Venice, "A splendour of miscellaneous spirits".
I apologise Mr Ruskin for using your words for my own devious ends.

This is a gorgeous and charming concept!! I just love the designs of those spirits below the water, and the panel design works quite well here :'D

I've been there for three months, studying at the Art School (with Erasmus)! I've seen the Carnivale...It was WONDERFUL (and awfully crowded)

It's beautiful but the water is disgusting XD

Ooooh wow!! How absolutely wonderful! *seethes with jealousy*
Hah, yes. I'd love to see the Carnivale but I'm not one for crowds. A leisurely trip at an off-peak time of year I think will be best for a first visit.

I was there from February to the beginning of May...The quieter was in February! Just before the Carnivale...the worst started in April ^^' I don't like crowds either! And the food is soooo expensive! It's hard to live in Venice XD It's not like I'm wealthy!
