This took me far longer than it should have, and it'll probably be my last work posted until I get a graphics tablet. I have a mountain of projects I owe people that I can't complete in any efficient way until I do. I also need a new computer. Working on this caused my current one to crash too many times to count. I wasn't going to post this until I got what I needed, but I figured I haven't posted anything of my own for quite some time, and it wouldn't hurt to post more Moriah for those of you who've been asking.

I had the idea for this drawing after watching an episode of American Dad (a big piece of chicken for anyone who can guess which), and I decided to do a sort of take-off of Sleepy's commission of Moriah he did for me some time back. While his commission showed her hard at work in her detective days, this shows her slightly less enthused in the tedium of her current job as an Assistant District Attorney, never without her coffee.
While she'd usually be a little shy about propping those big feet up around anyone she knew wouldn't enjoy the sight, when she's alone, and after a long day in her old heels, she's been known to make herself comfy...maybe after opening a window or two, though.
