Family Newsletter (02-13-11)

I decided to post the family newsletter we sent to friends and family at the end of November.

The misadventures we've lived through in the last couple of years were easily adaptable to the comics format and were more entertaining to look at than a humdrum banal typed letter...

...Where all good things eventually come to an end.

My Life is a Mess

Anyway, I've got so much material to write about, it's like I am living a sitcom.

So, for now, I'll keep it to happy memories.

Maxine's BD: Vacations in Hungary


...Where young P. gets acquainted with her paternal grand-mother.

Is the author a slacker or a procrastinator?

Well, I've been sick (one thing after another) and then, I keep getting distracted by such activities as having to make a living (grrr...) when all I want to do is work on my creative projects.

Anyway, I have several stories down on paper and hardly any time to sit down and draw. This is crazy because working on this stuff is my absolute priority in order of importance, and yet, time after time, it gets relegated to whenever, if ever.
The same thing applies to my other blog, "The Hyphenate." Dozens of sketches have been scanned and are still waiting to be organized and posted.

Anyway, check out my Yeti on the "Maxine on the run" blog; it's pretty cute, in a rustic sort of way.

Gary Losing It (ca. 12-08)

I gotta admit: I really like these small thumbnail sketches of Gary losing his temper, because I think I really caught the expression right... I planned to use them as a reference if I ever worked on a comic story about one of his rare but spectacular outbursts.
Funny!
