I am nudging ahead with the second chapter of Fir Valley, working on page layouts and pencilling. I guess I should get the first chapter (and other things) set up in the store so people can check it out. It continues to be decadent for me to have time to work on this. Time to go for a good walk every day. Time to spend with Manien.
As I work on Fir Valley, I am finding it is coming out quite serious, and hope that it isn't too grim. Whenever I co-write a comic with someone else, it ends up having a lot of goofiness. So that is just something I am thinking about, balancing the serious with the silly.
I am considering colouring Fir Valley. I quite liked how the colours came out on my transit comic, and thought I might continue in that vein.
Here is a joke Manien made because she knew it would make me laugh (it did).
Here are some quick drawings capturing assorted singing and goofing around on a day Manien and I went on a picnic by the Olympic Village. I am enjoying drawing my slightly shaggy hair.
We saw four spiders that had all built webs around the same Awesome Spot.
And here is a drawing I did of Duncan Trussel
