So I've been listening to Rossini's Barber of Seville pretty nonstop for a couple of weeks and probably driving the people upstairs batty. But not only is this one of my favorite operas, I've had this idea of doing a comic version for a while now. But I'd have to put my own twist on it to keep from being incredibly influenced by the character designs in Kaoru Mori's Emma, which featured a stage production of Barber very briefly.

So what's the equivalent of a topman/barber in a space station? A mechanic, porbably! And Figaro has to be a girl. Because I like drawing girls.

Figaro has her traveling guitar to help out with her "unofficial" business of helping people hook up. She's a dating service and repairgirl all in one!


Almaviva is our hero. He's in love with Rosina, but has to adopt several disguises in order to meet her, since her guardian tries to keep her locked up tight.


Rosina is eager to be free from her guardian and has fallen in love with Almaviva, but knows him as Lindoro, a poor student, not as a wealthy space count!


Her guardian is Doctor Bartolo, who I decided to make a mad scientist. In keeping with my future rules, he has to wear the traditional kilt of science.


The rest are here.

No, I don't know what's up with my taste.

The Tartan of Science suggests to me that the scientists of the future have reinforced colorblindness via generations of inbreeding and clannishness. ;)

Or they've perfected a meditation technique using the tartan that helps them solve complex problems!
The best part of deciding things like scientist wear kilts is coming up with reasons WHY.

Is that the future version of a Utili-kilt?

I think this is after Utili-kilts have taken over several planets and the emperess of Earth has decreed that men in kilts get a tax break.
