The Transcript For This Page
Large, flash-back sort of panel. A younger (but still quite large) Arana is in a wood-carving studio. He's working on one object; on shelves behind him are several other beautiful Maori carvings – see reference photos provided by Sandy. In a small cameo-panel overlooking the scene, we see Reggie, talking.
Reggie: Arana showed early promise of artistic ability, especially with traditional Maori wood carvings.
Reggie: He studied under a master carver and produced some beautiful sculptures.
Back in the present, Reggie is talking to Doris and Fiorella, who are turned to look at him.
Reggie: When we're all back on Ceres, remind me to show you several exquisite pieces I bought early in his career.
Looking past Reggie toward Arana at his desk, a bitter expression on his face.
Reggie: So what did your great talent earn you, Arana?
Arana: Bubkes, nada, zip, zero.
Another flashback panel. We see Arana, from behind, standing in front of a mirror, posed so that we can't clearly see his reflection. He's pulling something down over his head.
Caption (Reggie): 'So he decided that if art critics and fanciers weren't going to take him seriously, he wasn't going to take them seriously either.
Caption (Reggie): He looked around, saw who was getting attention – and money – and decided to create the most flamboyant deceit in the history of art.
Focus is on Doris, but above her head is a cloudy-bordered space in which appears the image of the masked 'Mysto.' It's a full-face mask with some bizarre design. Go nuts.
Reggie (OP): He put on a mask and …
Doris: MYSTO! You're Mysto!
Looking past Doris at Arana, who is half-risen from his chair and taking a deep bow.
Arana: Congratulations, Captain, I am indeed Mysto, the famed 'Interplanetary Environmental Artist.'
Pull back a bit so we can also see Fiorella, who reacts with mild shock to what Doris was saying.
Arana: How did you like my work?
Doris: It was crap.
