Huzzah! Success!


Am thrilled to death with the progress on page 4 - just had a *very* satisfying inking session, where everything was just working out perfect. After the struggle with 2 and 3, it's a welcome change, and actually boosts my confidence. Now to figure out what to put on all the bare walls of the scenes. Pictures? Plants? Graffiti?

I also moved my drafting desk further away from my work desk, and feel like I got a bunch of new space to breathe. Why didn't I do this earlier? Dumb dumb.

M and I just got our Christmas tree, and it's all fat and falling slowly and filling the house with piney smell - we'll decorate tomorrow, I hope. I have some ornaments from when I was a kid that my mum gave me, and also a silver bell from my Gram's tree from when she and my dad-dad (granddad) first were married. It's signed: "A & W, 1948." I love it.

I'm surprisingly in the spirit this year, and I'm a notorious Scrooge - I'm the one who usually refuses to let M listen to any Christmas music until about two weeks before the holiday because it's just wrong. But now I'm the one humming. I like all the old versions of Christmas songs best - Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Nat King Cole. Probably because my parents played them, they just sound familiar. But these days, I'm mostly humming one of my favorite Christmas songs:

Does the fact you have a picture of Animal Crossing mean that you have it? For the Wii? If so...we can play together! :D

Good going. I want to make the small room into a studio sometime in the future. Of course, that will take a heck of a lot of cleaning and throwing stuff out. Like Fred's enourmous piles of fabric.

No, I just found that pic randomly and thought it was funny. :-)

LOVE the pages so far -- I just love reading the story and the artwork is just so good! I know I'm not at the level you guys are, but I think it looks awesome, and I can't wait to read #2 in its entirety!

I'm with you on the Christmas spirit...I can only just now start enjoying it, with all the Drama stress behind me. I still have no tree...hopefully, this week!
