Iaroslav only put his foot in his mouth to that extent because he's been under a lot of stress lately. :P
(And sorry this took so long -- I'll also reply to messages really soon.)
Love the backgrounds!
Thanks! I love drawing them, so that works.
That tired look he has in the last panel is so, so tell tale. I really like the entire page. THought it looks calm it feels so heavy.
It's a lot of weight on him.
Always when you see human suffering that goes unaided.
That's for sure.
