I have a terrible confession to make. Leda, the main character, is supposed to be Indian. As in, from the subcontinent of India. Her mother as well.
The fact that you have gotten this far in the story and have not been able to tell that yet is a sad indictment of my skills as an artist and also a limitation of my format. I drew this thing deliberately small, and sometimes that has been a real limitation. I haven’t been able to do the close-ups and the giant distance shots that I usually do.
Most importantly, I’m embarking on an emergency drawing tour of India. I have to answer the question, what makes Indian people look Indian? Because if I can’t answer that question, my main character can’t be Indian.
