All Hallows

Happy Halloween, my friends!

I come to you today with a trick and a treat.

The trick was played on me by Mother Nature in the form of unexpected allergies. Now normally there are one or two days in the spring and the fall that some pollen hit the air and wreaks havoc on my nasal cavity. This year I seem to have gotten an extra day-of-drip. I have a small headache from sneezing. I hope gorging on halloween candy will cure it, because that's what i intend to do.

The treat is this little snippet from the cover of Zita 2! This is what I've been working on today and it's coming along nicely. These little guys appear near the bottom of the spine:

The other good news is that Zita the Spacegirl is on the nomination list for the Texas Bluebonnet Award. You can read about that on their website here, though this person's blog entry does a good job of explaining the award (and you can read the list without downloading a pdf).

OWS Comics will return soon! I have another project this week that will make a fun post -it's something I've been working on for a long time. So check back soon!
