Hey gang. Got some bad news about updates in the near future---the usb drive on my computer is shot, meaning no scans and no pictures for a while. I'm waiting for a replacement part to get in, which hopefully will come in less than a week. The good news is I've been taking snapshots and the like in the meantime so I'll give you a nice big imagedump soon.

Here's some more good news:

Almost done with the pages! Got a little clean up and toning to do, and some bonus material to get together. But my goal is to send it to the printers by August 10th, and I'm feeling pretty confident that I'll hit that date. Since I'm a little ahead of schedule I'm making room for a couple extra pages of porn to squeeze in...but I'll show you those when they're done. In the meantime, back to the drawing board!

The last few days have been a bit off for me. My very close friend lost a very good job, and the result is we're going to end up moving back to Chicago a lot sooner than we thought. Kinda shook me up. But. Still getting pages done!

 It's weird how you can get stuck on something. I spend most of today struggling to finish inking one page. Then, after setting it aside for a moment, I penciled and inked an entire page from scratch in a fraction of the time I spent wresting with the other one. Granted, part of it has to do with content and how some pages are more challenging than others, but part of it is just needing to take up something different when you've hit a wall.

I've been feeling a little leary of posting too many images of the pages I'm working on, mainly because I don't want to spoil all the stuff you'll be getting in the actual book! Though I suppose if you don't want spoilers you could just not read the blog. Still...some of you might want to keep up with how my progress is going. Hmm. Well, if any of you have a preference for what you do/don't want to see on this blog let me know in the comments and I'll try to cater!

And then Sarah drew strippers as evil mermaids for reasons that were confusing even to her.

The neighbor's dog has been whining all night, poor thing. That high pitched little sound cuts through me like a baby crying. It finally died down, though. Maybe its owners finally let it sleep on the foot of the bed or whatever it was making noise about. Well, good night to you all, then:)

On page 19 on inks and pencils and about where I want to be schedule wise. I'm finally breaking the "page a day" pace, though some pages are obviously faster and others are slower.

Got a side commission to do more paper dolls through Star Power and had some fun making their costumes today. If I do a little on them each day I think I can work them in without knocking Star Power off schedule

I think for the most part I'll just have pics on this blog in the future, but here's a peak at how I do perspective: I.e., a completely stupid way I wouldn't recommend for anyone.

Easy way to find the center of something--draw an X from corner to corner and the center will be where the lines meet.

 If you have a fetish for screaming women this is YOUR PAGE.
