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.
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,
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.
May 2014 be absolutely wonderful for you and for the planet.
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 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.
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.
Just finished page 65 yesterday. Getting closer!
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.
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.
To all you wonderful Kickstarter backers thank you so much! I’m thrilled The Big Belch reached it’s goal. Could not have done it without you.
