deadline

aw crap, it's 3:30am and I haven't inked the cartoons yet. I've gotta get up at 5am to leave for a friends wedding. I'll be gone for a week and I did the cartoons to carry me through 'till I get back on Tuesday. The thing is, I penciled them but I haven't gotten a chance to ink them. I could ink them before I left but then there would be no sleep before a 10 hour drive. A dead artist doesn't update as well as a live one. So there will be pencils for a week. They'll get inked when I get back. Keenspot has an automatic updating system so I always do a bunch of strips before I leave for a show or trip and upload them all. This blog thing doesn't do that.... It might but I'm too tired to figure it out and I've gotta be up in....an hour and a half. well crap. This should be interesting. Don't worry, Happy Goth is coming with me and she's probably sleeping right now. She'll poke me if the car starts drifting off of the road. oh, the pencils will be up on ...um...thursday till tuesday.

I hope you slept. Be safe! I'd rather have a few missed days than a dead artist, because they're WAY slow on updating

Zombie artist Da Vinci keeps making escape plans with Zombie powered flying vehicles. Totally unfair to the rest of the work force.

You had a fan girl moment over Tamora Pierce too, huh?

I stumbled across her outside the elevator at Darkover con. I remember squeeing for a week.

Yes please don't die.
Truth be told I love seeing the pre-ink comics.

The comic that posted on May 21st made me laugh. Tammy is tiny isn't she? Somehow you expect to see someone that radiates all that she creates.. but I guess it is safer that her blinding aura is dimmed down most of the time (otherwise we'd all be blinded as well as awestruck.).. I mean the angels chorus that sounds every time I see her is distracting enough! You've captured her very well, by the way.

It was cool to see how the strips changed between pencil and ink versions.
