Painting a Word Picture…

This is episode 132 of The Middle Age. You can read the story from the beginning here.

This episode once again showcases our hero’s bard-like mastery of storytelling.

Among the metaphors the Woeblade didn’t use:

  • Salivating a word puddle.
  • Burning a word casserole.
  • Buttering a word muffin.
  • Tracing a word hand-turkey.
  • Extruding a word sausage.
  • Dredging a word lagoon.
  • And precipitating a word cloud. Though, this one actually works. 🙂

Shop talk: Every time I think I’ve found a bit of a shortcut when drawing an episode, I end up using all the time I’ve saved by overdoing something else – like painting the individual licks of flame in a dragon’s mouth.

The Middle Age is now updated twice a week – on Mondays and Thursday! The Middle Age is made possible – and paid for – by my wonderful and kind supporters on Patreon!

Thank you all again! 😀
