Sci-Fi Fantasy Network asked me if I wanted to post another article after the previous had done so well. Of course, being the “Accidental Guru” I could not resist. Looking over all the excess piles of research in both notebooks and sketchbooks, I had to say yes. This time, the research stemmed from my searches for…
