Spotlight: Opopanax

3 Dec

December 3, 2011

Do you want to know a secret? Do you promise not to tell? Closer, let me whisper in your ear.

I listen to FlashCast for Opopanax.

There. I said it and there’s no taking it back. I listen to FlashCast for the Savage Opopanax.  She’s  a woman of mystery.

Oh sure, Jrd Skinner often reminds me of a brother from a different north-of-the-border mother, and the lovely and talented Jessica May brings musical wonder along with her amazing observations, and of course all she does behind the scenes, but it is Opopanax for whom I listen. Could it just be her voice? Her sense of humor? Her overall combination of whimsy with attitude, sass with a touch of self-depreciation when it is called for? Read that again, that’s a hard combination to pull off. She pulls it off effortlessly.

She is the “Narrator, Illustrator, and Overlord at Skinner Co,” but I suspect the iron fist is well hidden inside her velvet glove.

I have slotted her very appropriately in the usual Saturday Comics slot. Check out her latest work below, straight from, but first, a sketch she did especially for Mob Week.

You can find her at Facebook. Go ahead, friend her. I’ll try to keep my jealousy under control.
