My...it's all rather highbrow, isn't it! What a delightful illuistration...it has the quality of an 1800's photo depicted some sort of extraordinary contraption. Great interpretation!

I love the colors you used and how you've captured a victorian feel to this piece.

That's quite a story, there but so so fitting for these folks. Nicely done with the monochromatic color as well. I'd love to see more of these characters...is there more narrative by chance?

Thanks, everyone! Turns out this is a true story...with true chair. I'll update the entry with the skinny.
