[fanart] Abigail Hobbs is Uniquely Prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse  
I fully intend to post the rest of my Hannibal 1x06 recap this evening. But, just in case my not-entirely-justified exhaustion (I got a full night's sleep! Why am I more tired than ever!?) gets the better of me, I thought I'd go ahead and post this.

Actually started working on this around Episode 3 or 4, which was well before Amber's birthday. In a way, it's kind of a belated birthday gift, as we both over-identify with champion for Miss Hobbs. This was something I couldn't just do as a comic-- I had to break out the big guns. Watercolor pencils, chalk ink, india ink, and Smooch glitter on bristol board; the original is about 8x10. You can find a non-text version at the bottom.

Actually, a zombie invasion might brighten Abigail's day. Hannibal, on the other hand, would starve. Hahahaha.

This is so amazing, I can't even. Abigail. You're right. If she can just get past this hurdle (granted, it's a huge hurdle), she can survive anything.

This is so, so awesome.

I am so, so glad you like this-- it was basically done for you. I was thinking about Abigail, and also thinking about those first few semesters of college, when we joked about what a relief a zombie invasion might be as opposed to all the trials of academia.

Abigail is a survivor-- she doesn't hear that enough, especially not from people who mean it. Without Hannibal (and Freddie) manipulating her, this hurdle (while still enormous) would be a little less daunting. And definitely not as sharp.

*hugs* Thank you so much for commenting!

Aww, thank you so much! I used a lot of chalk-ink for the background-- I'm really happy that it turned out well, without taking away from the rest of the picture.
