Finally, a good sketch for the lightning strike

I've been working (only part time) on the illustrations I want to do for Take The Wind Up With You for a few months now, and it didn't feel like I was getting anywhere with them until recently, when I realized I was seeing this image more and more clearly in my mind with every boring sketch I made. Last night I finally got the basic idea down. Hooray!

This isn't the final version, but I'm beginning to understand both the process of development, and also the look that I want the illustrations to have.

Now on to the next one!

Ha-Tuk arrives!

Bowen and Morris
Morris has a new buddy, the young actor who will be playing Ha-Tuk in the movie. His first name is Bowen, but I don't know much about him yet, except that he's really smart.

He'll be starting work soon, but you know how it is when the budget is small—things happen very s-l-o-w-l-y.

However, I hear the movie theme song is almost finished, and will probably be the next video clip we'll see.

And speaking of exciting announcements, TTWUWY (the Kindle edition) is on a countdown deal right now in the UK! It runs from today through February 9th.
