I have a theory about the future of archaeology. One day, after the Great Disaster that has been predicted for decades in the pages of Kamandi, future generations are going to look back at the artistic output of the 21st century and wonder just who "Cecil" and "Carlos" were, why they look so different, and where this "Night Vale" place that everyone was suddenly obsessed with actually was. And as they sift through the remains of our society, they will come across the work of Rachel Saunders, and think "perhaps this is why they wrote so much about this Carlos and his hair."

That might be a little dark for an introduction, but the fact remains that Saunder, an artist based in the UK, has been doing amazing work with digital art of characters like Tintin, the Simpsons and, of course, Night Vale's own Carlos and Cecil. You may have even seen her work as a variant cover for Regular Show #3, but even if you haven't, it's worth taking a look. Check out a few of our picks from her gallery below!
