Below are some photographs by Ansel Adams, Christel Lebas and Oshihiko Ueda that helped me think about the forest in this story.

Mushroom story & THE FOREST
Here's most of the final strip for the zine, based on Lizzie's mushroom story it's a sort of abstract fable, loaded with visual symbolism, the mushrooms look like the moon they're in love with, and at the end the mushroom pile falls on to the women's backs turning them into sort of tortoise creatures who can no longer look up and see the moon. Strange and great to draw.
