The Piece that Does Not Fit by Taigan The Piece that Does Not Fit by Taigan
The new book collection of El Goonish Shive is out. It's title, "The Piece that Does Not Fit," brought the following image to my mind.

The art is all Copyright Dan Shive. He did the drawings. I just photoshopped it together and created the puzzle layout.

Aww...Poor Ellen. Even Evil-Alternate-Universe-Tedd & The Playah fit in, & nobody likes them!

Yeah, but they're either enemies or else just annoying bastards. "Fitting in" doesn't mean you're liked, just that there's some relation between you and others.

Very nice. I like the way you chose the pieces and matched them up, Susan/Jeremy, Elliot/Sarah, the way Nanase is looking over at Ellen, etc. :)

Thanks! :D
Ever since the phrase "piece that does not fit" was applied to Ellen, I had an image like this in mind. But evey time Dan visualized it, like on the back of the 2nd book, the "piece" was a pawn in a boardgame or some such.
I was amazed no one else seemed to have done this first!

Wow. Thanks, I didn't know people still looked at my old stuff. :D

Though I should take Sanchay's (tigereseye267's) advice and edit the description to make it clear I didn't draw the pictures in this.

Thank you!

Just so no one gets the wrong idea, the characters were *not* drawn by me. They've all been photoshoped from the comic strip itself. I just did some light coloring and the composition.
