Dark + Light. Cool + Warm. Reflect + Project. Moon + Sun. Yin + Yang. Chang'e + Houyi.

I was asked to contribute to Dark Horse Comics' Once Upon a Time Machine anthology, and was thrilled at the prospect of tackling the theme of futuristic fairy tales. So I chose the Chinese legend of Chang'e, the goddess of the moon.

Originally, I wanted to do Red Riding Hood, but apparently that had been chosen several times over. And on a whim, I did a Tarot reading for something unrelated and drew the XVII. Moon card — which in my deck (The Goddess Tarot), was represented by Chang'e. Serendipitous, one might say.
