I took part in a charity auction a few months ago, and was trying to decide what kind of piece to donate. I thought “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer” would be a good choice, with some mainstream appeal for would-be bidders. So I started doodling…

It was one of those instances where things came together quite quickly, layout/concept-wise. I’m a HUGE Buffy fan, and I wanted an iconic image to sum up the series and the character. The idea of Buffy blithely staking out (no pun intended) an about-to-rise vamp seemed like a dead-on (no pun intended) scene from seasons 1-3. It’s creepy, and funny, with a little bit of attitude. That’s our Buffster.

So, here’s the final…. with actually VERY little alterations (the undead hand is a little more lethargic in this one):

I love it when a plan comes together!
