Out to Lunch

Friends, I have been posting comics everyday (for the most part) for a little over a year now and have had an absolute blast doing it!! But now I really need to focus on "This Is How We Met" and I don't want to be torn between putting something online and finishing this book. This was really always supposed to be my next book and like More Than Sparrows - the writing has taken a lot longer than I had anticipated. I contemplated putting some of the pages online (I shared the introduction already) but just decided that I would save everything for the book. My goal is to have this out by the end of January 2008 - I'm talking about xeroxed copies that will be available directly from me. I plan to submit this to a publisher that has produced some high quality children's books and most recently announced plans to publish graphic novels. Fingers crossed. I haven't completely given up on blogging :) just don't look for something everyday......thanks again for hanging out with me for the past year!! Read through those archives!! I'm proud of a lot of those strips :)

Your Lucky to have people care and even express appreciation to you when you announce that you're leaving your online activities to finish a project...

I truly feel blessed to have such great friends. To have peeps like Eric and Kneon (who are outstanding artists!) consistently drop by and encourage me has been a huge motivating factor. Josh has always given freely of his time to help me look like a real artist :) and I got to meet Travis and his family this past Sept. at Baltimore....it's just been so cool! Everyone has been so nice. I hope to put up some sneak peeks this weekend of this newest project so check back:) Also, be sure to check out Previews and look at my bruthas Franco and Art! are they famous or what?!?
