A selection of Backgrounds from the Steven Universe episode: "Giant Woman"
Art Direction: Kevin Dart
Design: Sam Bosma
Paint: Elle Michalka, Jasmin Lai
These were, I think, the set of backgrounds where I felt like I finally hit my stride. It’s also one of my favorite episodes.
“Misha, the Russian bear, served as mascot—and merchandizing phenomenon—for the 1980 Moscow games. During the games themselves, Misha appeared as a giant balloon that was released during the closing ceremonies as a cartoon version of him shed tears on a screen and a choir of children sang ‘Good-bye, our sweet Misha.’ There was not a dry eye in the stadium.
“One can only imagine the tears that the mascot’s further fate would elicit: The balloon was recovered on the outskirts hours later, and put in storage where it was abandoned to be devoured by rats.”

They’re even made by an Intaglio press, but Mm-hmm.
But what? They’re counterfeit.
I don’t understand.
I thought that Intaglio presses were only available to governments.
They are, which tells me, Calleigh, this is a supernote.
Good enough to undermine an entire economy.
So what makes it a supernote? The ink on a supernote lies flat on the currency while on a genuine note the ink is slightly raised.
The plates they use for a supernote leave a slightly sharper edge then on the genuine one.
It’s especially obvious on the hands of the clock tower.
Can you see that?
