My girlfriend, Sarah, has an 11 year old Boxer named Missy. She's a really fun and sweet dog, but has had some problems as of late. She's been living with us in Chicago, so I've become quite attached to her as well. I lost my dog in May 2009, so Missy has helped ease the pain of that huge hole in my heart. The last week has had us at a lot of various vets and today Missy goes under surgery as a last effort to help her get a good quality of life back and be a happy dog again. I made this picture for Sarah and Missy last night as I was watercoloring. As a huge comic book nerd, it's my message of hope for them. The Blue Lantern's have recently been introduced into the Green Lantern mythos as a Hope driven corps, so when I thought of Hope I thought of them. So here it is, Missy being sworn in as a Blue Lantern, able to inspire hope in people. She needs as much as she can get today, so if anyone does read this, I would greatly appreciate a quiet wish for her. At the time of writing this, Missy will be going into risky surgery in an hour and a half.
