Hi everyone, welcome to the new posting schedule! Now you can face Monday morning with a brief break for a breath of bracing salt sea air aboard the Mermaid!
While I’m working on comics, I sometimes listen to podcasts (not while I’m doing the lettering!). This week I’ve been listening a lot to a guy named Will Terry, whose you tube channel has a lot of really good information for illustrators and comics artists. If you are one of those, you might want to check him out!
It’s been a busy week and a half — hanging a show of kitty art, off to Saskatoon Expo and back, and immediately into the home stretch of the children’s book project! I’m really looking forward to a quiet autumn (Happy Autumn, by the way — or Happy Spring if you happen to be on the south half of the planet!) with lots developing in the world of Mermaid Music.
It’s good to be back aboard The Mermaid! I’ve been working on two book projects for publication over the last couple of months, and while one takes place at the seashore (and under the waves) it’s no substitute for my own beloved comic. I’ve really enjoyed drawing Maggie’s little excursion (if you follow my other work, you’ll know drawing cats is one of my favourite things), and she will certainly have more adventures in upcoming chapters.
In other news, I’ll be at the Saskatoon Comic and Entertainment Expo next weekend, September 17 and 18. If you’re coming to the event, look for me in Artist’s Alley! I’ll be right next to my friend k.d. prosser, of ThinkInk Comics!
