The Coming Race

The final drawing in the "Timeless" series:

The Coming Race, 2008, brush & ink on paper, 14" x 11".

The title, The Coming Race, is a reference to the novel, "Vril: The Power of the Coming Race" by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, first published in 1871. I have not read this novel. The title, "Timeless Drawings" is a vague nod in the direction of The Endless, as featured in the Sandman comics, written by Neil Gaiman & produced by DC, as introduced to me by my friend Alisa. Neither of these references has much bearing on the content of the drawings, as far as I can see.
