For our next installment of The Misadventures of the Airship Isabella, I give you “Tinkering”.
If you are interested in learning more about Audra, click her picture!
Also, included in this edition of the Misadventures we are featuring the story of the last comic for you to read. We want you to be able to enjoy the wonderful art that is just spilling out of our Art Department, but also get to read the stories that they draw their inspiration from for these little one page illustrated pieces.

The summer here was hot. Hotter than most the crew might experience on any given day in the life of the Isabella’s ventures. It was so hot, in fact, that the aether needed to power the jump drive allowing them to travel from place to place, had grown too thin to collect. Because of this, the ship had deployed their large balloon to keep from drifting too low to the surface and risk being detected. That, unfortunately, had been days ago…
Amelia Whittaker sat with fan in hand on the largest of the covered decks sipping an iced tea. Her dress, much like the rest of the crew’s, had turned into the smallest showing of clothing required to still be dressed for mixed company and not stew to death in sweat in ones own sweat. Audra, their mechanic, sat beside her dazed and red-faced in the sweltering heat.
Luthiem grumbled to herself as she forced open a jar of blood. The heat had since turned her supply to a coagulated mess. With a mournful look she proceeded to dump the contents off the bow and over the side. “Can’t we refill any faster…” She whined.
Amelia’s head swung languidly to face her, “No…and don’t dump that over the side, it’ll fall somewhere and likely be a bad day for somebody.”
