Hi Everybody! (That is supposed to be read in a Dr. Nick voice)
I'm having a hard time focusing on the computer right now because it is absolutely AMAZING outside! Plus I slept in until 12:00 today which is VERY unusual for me, so now I feel like a zombie. I'm pretty sure I was trying to save the world in my dreams as well, so I woke up exhausted on top of it all... now that just read all of that, I'm convinced I'm just fighting off some cold... the human body is crazy...
Drew got some more lasers in his eye on Thursday. He's got 3 more sessions to go, so we're going to take it a little slow on the comic book for the next 3 weeks. We don't want to push it too hard and do permanent damage to his peepers because we couldn't wait. In the meantime, I'm almost done laying out the panels. I know we could do all of that stuff with computers now, but we're pretty adamant about having this thing be 95% hand made.
On a paint-y note: There has been progress on "At Least He Still Has His Teeth". I would say he's about 85% done now. I added the background and changed the color of his jumpsuit because the gray wasn't working. So it just needs fencing added in front of the audience, much more shadow contrast, and some aging... I'll keep you posted!

Oh Chicago weather, you so crazy! Now it's time to get crazy beautiful...
Not much going on right now. We're re-doing what we have of the Issue 0 comic, and I'm almost done creating the panels. Tedious business, but I'd be lying if I said that I didn't enjoy working with rulers and triangles. It makes me miss carpentry more than I already do.
Ok, so still working out the blogging regularly schedule, but I'll get there I swear. There were a couple of hiccups in the work schedule last week because of Drew's less-than-expected eye surgery. He had to get the left eye taken care of on Thursday, and the right eye will get a lasering next Thursday. Fun times!
I hope all the mommies had a good mommies day! You are loved, and for who it applies to, very missed.
Tonight I'll be working on laying out panels for the Issue 0 comic book. So, no interesting images coming from these hands today, just much needed foundation work.
