1. What happened on Monday? I just missed it. I’ve been working these stupid long days trying to get the Modest Medusa Season 2 book ready for the printer, and Monday just went by without me noticing at all!
2. So why is this page in black and white? To save time this week and help make sure I get the book to the printer on time I decided to skip coloring for now. I’ll be coloring today’s strip and Friday’s strip later this month when I have some free time. I hope you guys don’t mind.
3. Wait a minute, the book isn’t done yet? Uh, yeah. Sorry. The original plan was to have the files to the printer by the end of August. But between finishing up the colors for the 2nd Hereville book in July, traveling around the country to 4 big conventions in August and doing 9 full sized pages for the “Burn the Kingdom” story in September I ended up falling about a month behind.
So the files for the book are due at the printer this weekend, and I think I’m going to make it. Right now I still have a bunch of stuff left to do, but I’m working 12-14 hours a day to make it happen. This book is just a lot more work than the last one, but I think it’s going to look a lot better as well! I had originally hoped to have the books back sometime in November. I doubt that will happen now. More likely the books will suffer from holiday shipping lag and show up in late December or sometime in January. That sucks, I know.
Here’s one of the bonus strips from the book!
