Off their Game

I’ve been looking forward to introducing you to Darya… Rudek and Malutki don’t know what to make of her. They aren’t even sure if she’s one of them, or working for someone else. But one thing’s clear–she’s going to give these newbie spies a run for their money! I tried to get loose with the…Read more

A Riddle

Sorry for the delay on this one, which turned into two weeks! 😔 But at last, our novice spies are off on their first adventure… finding the office they have been assigned to! I wanted to try a split complementary color scheme in this one, mainly because I have never really worked in one before….Read more

Welcome to Minsk

New chapter, new undercover looks, new setting! After my initial research, I spent an hour trying to re-locate a picture of the pedestal of the Tsar Alexander statue that was toppled in 1919. Finally found it. But what I can’t re-find, for some reason, is the picture I had seen of the Hirsh Leckert memorial…Read more

Moving On

Szpadel knew something was up… And knows not to press for more information. And Rudek knows a buddy like Szpadel, who helps you stay sane, deserves a proper goodbye.   Well, friends, it’s been a journey of about six years, but this marks the end of Chapter 2… What’s next? Stay tuned! Rudek and Malutki…Read more

Bad at Goodbyes

I think this moment of parting kinda sums up their relationship :) Also, woah! Check out Malutki in “western costume.” Can’t be bumming around in Belarusian peasant garb if he’s off to spy school! I also tried a couple new things with colors and the approach to the background. In the middle three panels, I…Read more


Rudek’s PTSD won’t simply go away… But at least Skorzany understands and sees a path forward for his old comrade in arms. Pretty happy with the colors in this one, which are based around a complementary pair I rarely use: yellow and indigo. Snuck in some low-saturation reds and oranges without complicating things too much,…Read more

Panna Masza, Our Hero

Masza has just donated a chunk of her smuggler’s cache to the needy children of Stołpce…she’s finally made up for, well, contributing to their penury in the first place. She should feel good. So, why does she feel so distracted, so listless? Edit: comic updated for correct Polish grammar. :)  

Masha’s Best Deal Yet?

Tried something different with the layout, which required some real problem-solving in Clip Studio. I wanted desperately to maintain my pace of an update per week, so I chose to revert to digital painting on the backgrounds, and kept them a little looser and sketchier. I’m not totally displeased with the result, because it still…Read more

Red Handed

This was one of those comics where I kept fussing with it after it was probably done. The problem was I liked the look of the characters in flat colors, but with the complexity of the background, the eye-path wasn’t clear–so I added some lighting effects in hopes of guiding the eye. On the other…Read more
