Comments on The Big Belch


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.

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


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.

Alternative energy now


Today – June 19th – The World Bank issued a report about how very serious threat from Climate Change is titled “Turn Down the Heat: Climate Extremes, Regional Impacts, and the Case for Resilience.” There is also now a movement on college campuses to force their endowments to divest from oil companies. Another thing I heard in the last couple of days is that there is significant science showing that women giving birth in areas with a lot of soot and other pollution from fossil fuels have twice the rate of having children born with autism. So my update is – don’t wait, let’s go alternative energy now!

I’m making good progress on The Big Belch. Just starting on the drawings for page 50 of 100.

Earth Day


Happy Earth Day! Be kind to your planet.

The Big Belch project reached it’s Kickstarter goal at 9:56 a.m. today. Yahoooo! I’m thrilled.
Now I have to ramp up my drawing. No lollygagging this summer. But it feels so nice.

Thank you so much for helping me reach the goal!!!!
