So for all of you who have been waiting for me to get my act together and get SkulKlan going, this is my launch off point.  I am taking NaNoWriMo in an entirely different direction.  The goal of my November is to get the layouts and text DONE for SkulKlan. So that from there I can mull on whether to pitch it to a traditional publisher or just move on and start arting and self publish.

I took a long break from it for various reasons (busyness, personal problems etc). But am really diving back in head first and loving it.  I feel like I have already made a great deal of progress and look forward to pushing the envelope.  I think it is going to be somewhere between the styles of "Katurran Odyssey" and "Berona and the Hundred Year War".  I.e. this is not your typical comic panel graphic novel, it is going to be a lot of spreads and journal entries and strangeness such as that.  As for when it will be done.. well, we'll see. But hopefully the TEXT will be finalized and many of the thumbnails nailed down by the end of the month.  

In other news I found a publisher for the playing cards. I am going to nail down a final price with them this week and get cranking on pre-orders.  The cards should come out in January as predicted.

Hope you are all doing well.
So after the previous disaster day, I took a drive around my neighborhood to figure things out some more, and later discussed my successes/failures/strategies (yes I have strategies *LIES*) with my brother, whose first car (which he still has) is stick.

It was pointed out that the first day I wore my chucks, did fine, second, wore chacos (fave shoes EVER but really thick soles) did horribly, third wore my Five fingers did great... so until I get the hang of this more, thin soled shoes it is. But, in other news, haven't stalled the car since! Course this probably means as soon as I go to get backing board for the show I will stall at the 75/beltline intersection and be T-boned by a 18 wheeler - or a runaway elephant, but still, hooray for small successes.

In other news we had crepe night the other night. Glorious glorious crepe night. Savory crepes included, a steak and worchestershire concoction, a chicken pesto, and a sausage and mushroom.  Sweet crepes included cookie dough, nutella and the WINNER for the night, chocolate eclair crepes, which were amazingly fantastically crazily wonderful.  NOM.

And last but not least, here, have art!  Still doing a playing card a week, still enjoying the heck out of it!

Bye now!

Because if I never hear the term snowpocalypse it will be too soon.

Not to mention that in terms of weather until yesterday THERE WASN'T SNOW at least where I am. And to be quite honest I was iced in. But Yeah. Been iced in since Tuesday morning. Wheeeeeeee. Tons of tiny tiny little ice pellets, little sleetballs everywhere turned the roads to slick black and white ice covered morasses, the weathermans fail (and our listening to him) meant that Todd was parked up our driveway instead of in the road Tuesday morning (as the storm supposedly wasn't going to be in until Tuesday night). And he was locked in here until yesterday, and the boy does not take well to that so... fun.

We did get lovely lovely snow yesterday though. About five inches of beautiful white fluffy powder. Which is now almost entirely melted away, except for the shady spots.

In personal news, it looks like there may be a high likilihood of my moving, perhaps to Colorado, this spring, without Todd. We had another long talk the other day and agreed that unless there is significant progress/improvement by April I should probably move out or we are going to hate each other... so, we'll see, but for those of you in CO if you keep your ears open for affordable housing opportunities, that accept one large sweet dog opening anytime between april and june I'd sure appreciate it.

And if you could all cross fingers, burn incense, whatever you do when you hope for people, I just applied for a job which, while it may or may not pay great would be a freaking blast so if you could keep me in your thoughts I'd sure appreciate it.

Here have some art,  it's more fun than any of that chatty crap anyhow.
I'm having a freaking blast with the playing cards, with any luck they will be done by next FC *fingers crossed*
