No art for the week of Christmas. Perhaps you’ll get ALL of the remaining Wizard’s Lesson next week. I’m gonna be finishing it up during my days off.
I did you up a nice Toys in the Bookstacks. Please enjoy.
It doesn’t matter much, though, since my ability to draw pretty ladies extends about as far as I can flick a boulder. I make do with “visual cues.” *koff*
As always, click the pic to embiggen.
I’ve also included my latest Artisan Pony, which is one of my more unfortunate ones. I intentionally started drawing from the back of the neck, which led to some, whatchamacallits…birth defects. Submissions always welcome, click the pony for details.
The Wizard’s Lesson has rounded the last curve and is entering the final straightaway, to use pony terminology. I figure that by the end of the next two weeks, it will be finished. I’ll make a post with the entirety of the work as the last entry for it.
Anybody have suggestions/requests on what to draw next, beyond my “Grammar Nazis” comic and “the benchilada tarot?”
I’m tired of waiting until the last minute to do the actual writy-bit of my entries, so I’m actually writing this the night before.
I haven’t been sticking to my Ten Minutes A Day rule with my art, justifying the many hours I spend on them anyway as being justified. This is bullshit, amirite*?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m having fun with the Artisan Pony Project and the fabulous guest artists that I’ve gotten so far, but I feel like I’ve been dropping-out of the one-page-funny comics, focusing perhaps too much on being Srs with my art. Starting again tonight, ten minutes every day.
I should also get back to a story or two that I was briefly working on. And the dishes. Nadja‘s sleeping, though, so I shouldn’t do the latter right now. Our bedroom and kitchen are only separated by a curtain.
We have been having preposterous amounts of fun lately, including the great success that was the Kung Fu and Kasseroles Party. Great friends, and casseroles and covered dishes were consumed in large quantities.
Here are trailers for the movies that ran all night:
Living Room TV:
Laptop in Library:
Netbook Opposite the Toilet:
The Fearless Hyena on repeat (a personal favorite, my first Chan kung fu film).
Anyroad, welcome to the SECOND most bizarre part of The Wizard’s Lesson:
