For the Shutter Vol. 1 TPB credits page leiladelduca did a more intricate design of the Kristopher family crest.

To commemorate the conclusion of Shutter’s first super-rad arc (do note that I live in the mountains and get my comics via mail order, and I’m still waiting on issue #6 to come in, so no fucking spoilers please), I drew a little fan art of my two current favorite supporting characters in…
