Today I finished reading The Left Hand of Darkness. The cold felt vivid. While I was reading, a desire was kindled in me to depict some of the scenes. Here's a very rough doodle done in Procreate on the department-sponsored fancy iPad. I'll look up some references for volcano with glacier. Iceland, anybody?

The Fire Mountain on Ice

Karhide and Orgoreyn were interesting countries that well reflected the plagues of our own world. The interaction of Therem Harth rem ir Estraven and Genly Ai felt tragic.

I think what I thought about had already been thought about by anyone who had read the novel, so probably there is no need to put down these obvious thoughts. I like the novel!
