I get That Urge to Draw whenever I’m just about to move. Which means much disarray if my art material has been packed up. I’ve learned by now to not tape up the box lest I’m driven by desperation to buy all-new drawing material just to satisfy That Urge.
Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Now I have to try and figure out moving coordination, because I have to be out of here Jan 31 but can only move in Feb 1 after noon, which screws me out of a move-everything-in-and-out-in-just-one-
If you guys have any other ideas or suggestions on this, I'd be more than happy to hear 'em. Oh lordy, I think I might just stay at a nice hotel with ze birdies during that period too, because I will need *something* to keep me sane and pampered during that time.
. . . Y' know, I was gonna say this might end up my most expensive move ever, but then I remembered that I'd only just moved cross-country and across the border not too long ago. Heh. How quickly we forget.

Tuesday With Everything In It update! In which there are boys. Yay boys! A bus full of the Y chromosome. You can see why Ms. Cruz is more than a little piqued, can’t you?
Well, maybe you will. Eventually.
Also, hey, how about enjoying a couple of in-progress shots?
Soooooooooooooooooooooooo, remember when I casually mentioned that TAI has the originals of my fan-comic now?
Sascha alerted me to this.
. . . I really cannot possibly hide this now.
. . . You realize it's only a matter of time before they discover the whole thong thing.
Sascha calls me "a very strange scene queen in the making." To my flummoxation (and I don't think that's a word), I really can't argue with that.
. . . Dude.
Before you get too eager for upcoming pages, I should mention that this whole sequence is not going to involve any full-frontals. Mainly because when I asked le editor de GS about its policy on nudity, he was all, “I shall smite thee with the power of a thousand suns!”
And I was all, “You don’t have a thousand suns.”
And he was all, “I said the power of. Don’t argue with me, woman!”
And I was all, “Fine, but I’m going to stick a naked tush there and that’s final.”
And he was all, “Oh hell yeah.”
. . . Well, okay, I’m paraphrasing. A lot. Don’t tell him I said all this.
Anyway, ‘tis a Bitters Past update. Go read!
Also, advanced notice that there won’t be an update next week. Why? Because it’s my birthday, and I’m taking the week off to celebrate! Bitters Past will resume week after that. But hey, as a consolation, you folks get a bonus below! I’d mentioned to Kat that I’d taken some in-progress shots of the previous page because I loved the middle three panels so much. Here they are for your enjoyment!
To the Cobras, glad you like. :) To everybody who posted comments and responses, aw, thank you! I really appreciate it!
Mike commissioned three MMII sketch cards from me a couple of weeks ago, but we kept it under wraps because two of them were surprise presents. He’s given the presents now, so I can showthem to you! Have a gander at The Incredible Hulk, Invisible Woman, and Gambit. I had great fun working on Hulkie, to my surprise. Thanks, Mike!
See the sketch cards here! Like previous sketch cards, this one has in-progress shots that you can check out.
