Now working on page 94. Have a great Solstice, Holiday of your persuasion, and fantastic New Year!
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 here, still drawing, making good progress. Just so busy I haven’t had a chance to post. Here’s a rough sketch of François running that I did today.
Happy Earth Day! Be kind to your planet.
Oh – and in case you’re wondering, yes I’m working hard on The Big Belch. In this page Monty, Maureen, Fletcher and François have a picnic lunch with Harold.
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!!!!
Monty, Maureen, Fletcher and François, environmental crime fighters, will now take on their first case. Check back here for updates.
Hey, think the idea of a methane explosion is far fetched? The permafrost in Siberia is leaking huge quantities right now and it’s really ratcheted up recently. YouTube videos of snow flaming up are impressive.
Just today I saw an article in the LA Times that methane coming up from the ocean in Santa Monica Bay created such a stench that the fire department started getting a ton of calls. And don’t forget those peat bogs.
We clearly need more parrots and French bulldogs to save the day!
