Comments on The Big Belch

Standard

Yes I’m working hard on The Big Belch.

I actually have it out for the first round of comments. Not only have my dear friends told me I’ve got some revisions to do, but one said and I quote, “Were you trying to kill yourself!”

Her point being I guess that I’m an idiot who signed on for the huge amount of drawing done already and a lot more to go.

Vastly underestimated what I was getting into. Really thought it would take less time. Beginners mistake, never having done a graphic novel before. But I am actually getting somewhere. So there is hope. Really.

Fletcher, the environmental crime fighting parrot

Standard

Just wanted touch base. I’m making pretty good progress on The Big Belch drawings. Working on page 102 today. Going to be 110 for the novel itself and I’ll be taking a good friend’s suggestion and adding a back section with fossil fuels/climate change information.

I hope you’re surviving January 2014 OK – not snowed in or iced in or for the different side of the planet, dealing with drought. Climate change is aptly named I think. It does seem to be changing things up.

Thank you for supporting The Big Belch graphic novel project!

All the best,
Kay

PS – This is a drawing I did today of Fletcher, the environmental crime fighting parrot, friend and companion to fellow crime fighters; Monty, Maureen and François, the French bulldog.

P.S. – It’s four years since the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico and Louisiana is still cleaning up – 4.6 million pounds of oil just this year! Folks are still picking through tar balls on the tide line and who knows what else is going on. Maybe it’s time to give alternative energy a chance?

Still drawin’ The Big Belch graphic novel

Still drawin’ The Big Belch graphic novel. Working on page 81 today, and mighty glad to be doing so! I’ve been suffering a computer glitch nightmare for about a month or so. Gaaaaa! Fingers crossed that this latest attempt at a fix works.

Almost Three Quarters Done

Standard

Nearly three quarters done with the drawings for The Big Belch. Or well, at least the first go round. Looking back, there’s a lot I want to revise.
