Here's the last penciled page. I've still got to letter and ink them all... That'll take a little while now that I've started teaching again. I know I didn't get as much done during my break as I had hoped, but I think I did pretty good. My goal is to be able to put out 4 books a year.

I'm teaching a new class. There's also a bit of drama at work, which makes me very unsettled...

Just one more page to go...

So close. So close.

This one actually took longer than it looks. I had to re-work my thumbnails. I could tell that when I was doing my thumbnails I rushed the last few - denoting areas 'to be resolved later'. Well... I guess today it was officially 'later'.

I finally feel like I'm in the home stretch of finishing the pencils on this story... Only 3 more pages to go. I'm not getting as much done during spring break as I thought. As long as I finish these pencils and get started in finishing them before the new quarter starts, I think I'll be happy. My goal is to be able to do a book every quarter (at least 4 full books a year). Once things get more settled here in the new house it'll go smoother - plus I'm still finding my place at work - lots of class prep and what have you. That'll dwindle down soon enough.

I did these two pages yesterday but have had trouble uploading them. I used something different - hence how LARGE they are.

I was dreading this page, but when I got to drawing it I really enjoyed it.


Pages 14 and 15

Well... obviously I didn't get as much done this weekend as I thought I would.


Pages 12 and 13

I'm going to have to start tweaking the colors on this webpage...

Pages 10 and 11.

Here are two new pages...

As soon as I unpack the official PillowHead plush toy, I'll put up a picture.


A new house and spring break goals...

So we've moved into our new house - we'll, all of our stuff is there. We'll be setting the place up for a while. Here's the front. Disregard the flag on the front of the house - we plan on taking it down. Not because we don't like the American flag,it's just that I'd rather not have ANY sort of flag sticking out of the middle of the front of the house. It's like a big long nose or something. We haven't got it down yet because the previous owner is coming back sometime to pick up a few things he left - he's millitary and I don't want to hurt his feelings.

This will be my studio - as you can tell. It's on the first floor (Kristie's work area will be upstairs next to the bedrooms). I've been unpacking books into bookshelves all day.

Here's a bird's eye view of our living room. Notice that we have all the same old furniture... Who can afford new couches when you just buy a house?

The back yard is the best part of the house. We've got a few nice big trees, lots of space and such. There's even a swing in one of the trees.

There's also a big workshop in the backyard - we're calling it the barn (to avoid confusion with the actual garage that's attached to the house). It's almost 500 sq. ft. plus there's a 2nd story for storage or whatever.The bottom floor will be 1/2 wood shop 1/2 ceramics studio. We're going to put a basketball goal on the outside (as the previous owner intended).

Now I've got a week and a half to work on stuff. Besides the fuss of working on the new home, I'm going to try and finish this book. Hardcore, huh? I want to have the pencils finished by this Sunday night so I can spend the next week lettering and inking. I guess I need to get started instead of typing on this thing...
