I know, I know! I'm overdue for a blog post, but things have been HOPPING around here! I'm finally in the finishing stages of the Zita the Spacegirl Graphic novel and I've been learning a lot more than I would have expected from the coloring process.

I've also been hard at work building a set of bunk beds for the girls. As a woodworker I'm slow and I have to plan for mistakes. But these beds are turning out pretty well, if I do say so myself. I'm particularly proud that they are made entirely from scavenged wood. The other sideline project I've been working on is preparing for an upcoming fire show. I'll try to come back with some good pictures.

Well, fall is in the air and, sadly, I'm afraid the summer is going to slip by without seeing me do a lick of real painting. And I had such high hopes...
