Now that the Great Missing Week of May '11 is behind us. Let us move on to a new post.
I'm excited about the new story, it has been percolating for some time now, I think it is ready.
It's a little something from the Picture Book Marathon, and it isn't The Fort That Got Me Grounded. It isn't even from this year's marathon.
MERMAID FIRE BRIGADE from the '10 PBM!
Sorry if you were hoping for The Fort That Got Me Grounded. I'll get to that one some day--right about the time you all forget that I was going to do it. It sounds cheesy, but I've found with this blog, for me to really enjoy it, I have to be free to follow my muse. Right now my muse is that big silly whale cruising down the street.
I've noticed that when I schedule and plan stories on the blog--especially when I announce the schedule and plan, I lose all interest in posting the things I scheduled and planned. After all, delivering agreed-upon drawings is my day job. The blog operates on surprise--it's gotta be free, man, free like that whale. He doesn't know what he'll do next! One day he's swimming in the ocean, the next day he's riding around the city streets with a buncha mermaids on his back.
Here we go, Mermaids, here we go!
