You may recall a few months ago I ran a competition calling for readers to submit art for a strip. The winner was announced back in #1157, but I still have a couple of runners-up to get through. This was sent in by Mike Rayhawk.

I'm not sure how Mike did this. It looks like he built a pretty faithful replica of the Roman alchemical lab set last seen in #1227, but then he's somehow manipulated Marcus' legs and body to produce this marvellous art.

2016-03-21 Rerun commentary: I've since discovered that Mike is, I am pretty sure, an artist who works for LEGO and uses various computer graphics tools to create "lifelike" LEGO figures, which look basically like real plastic figures, but have arbitrary flexibility. I don't know much more than this, but if you've ever bought a LEGO product, then it's possible that you've seen more of Mike's artwork.
