Gone sailing…

Managed to get a little sailing in but have cats and Louis Wain on the brain:

Starting on the sixth and final chapter of Grant Morrison’s ‘The Smile of the Absent Cat.’ As of right now, I’m still in the, “How the heck am I gonna pull this off?” stage. But that’s half the fun.

And comin’ up in three weeks:

Now, with added John Travolta! (Shelley’s very excited.)

cats continued…

Here are the pencils so far for the first 4 pages of chapter 4:

…okay… on to the next 4 pages.

The Pros of Cons

Here’s the best thing about going to all of these conventions:

Meeting fans of the book.

For example, here’s Jon:

He drove from Orlando to Tampa Bay to come to the show.

Here’s the sketch I did for him:

And here is Jon’s wall:

He had scanned the cover of ‘Flight’, printed it out in large banner-type strips

and wall-papered a 4 foot by 7 foot section of a room in his house.

I mean… how frickin’ cool is that?
