Stutter, stutter, plonk

Chep is still a ways out. Chep is going to take some form as a webcomic but May has been a rough and shitty slog through more crap and vile detritus than I care to elaborate upon. I was hoping to have 10 pages done by the end of next week and be supremely happy with a nice frontload, but this last salvo of finding out I am being downsized/laid-off, is well, shitty as all hell. I'm drawing and sketching and working on being a less shitty artist, but well, its a slow, hard burn.

I will put up some thumbnails and some stupid drawings of Chep once I locate a scanner I can use.

In the meanwhiles, you should read Lonely Werewolf Girl by Martin Miller. I was very fortunate to be able to work on this book as the proofreader of the US edition from Soft Skull Press, who also published the Good Fairies of New York which I found because of that Gaiman fellow who writes all those comics and books of which I am a fan wrote an introduction which I found while trolling Soft Skull's site a few years back. I've been giving both books out as gifts for Christmas and no one has yet to say they didn't love it. Then go read Tim Kreider's The Pain, When Will it End.

And check out the 01:02 Blog, some great stuff there.

And again, to repeat and repeat myself, back to Hanalei.
