Boomer Flats

RA Lafferty, Boomer Flats
They lay down in the red roaring river, and one of the giants set a heavy rock on the breast of every person of them to hold them down.
R. A. Lafferty, "Boomer Flats"

An illustration for R.A. Lafferty's climax to the short story Boomer Flats. Originally intended to accompany a particular essay in Feast of Laughter.

I decided while sketching this out that I would try to draw characters that reoccur in the stories, like the various members of the Institute of Impure Science, as consistently as possible across illustrations.

I don't plan on overtly identifying who is who, but over time I suspect people will be able to put faces to names.
