This is so wonderfully laid out. I love the lighting and detail.

Please tell me the name is a reference to the plague....

He better not be a "snake oil salesrat"(Yeah I know the origins of that saying and is he using rattlesnake or Chine watersnake oil?)

He's cute, but he seems like the villain of a story.
"And for stopped up noses, try skunk oil! Clears up those sinuses in no time!" I could see him pitching that.

The level of your skills seems unreachable with drawings like the above because you know how to position and present a fugure or a full scene so that it will definetely capture one`s imagination with its care for details and amazing shading ! Great work!

With a name like Pestis, I don't think his remedies will be very helpful... (pestis means "pest" in Latin)
