Ok, I haven't blogged much in the last week, or so. I've kinda had the blahs. Following a bad cold, I got an upper respiratory infection. The cold, no big deal. The infection, no big deal either. The medication to treat the infection makes me sick. It zaps my energy level and sours my stomach. And all I feel like doing is sleeping...in the mens room.
Though I haven't blogged, I've still been busy. Finished re-sketching FARMER. The editor, author and publisher all have given me the thumbs up to begin final art, beginning with the cover. The author sent his best wishes, letting me know how much he liked the new direction. Cool thing is, the publishers have offered a generous amount to make up for the re-sketch. I plan to begin soon after returning from TLA.
On Friday, at TLA, I will sign my books with Lee & Low (11 a.m. to 12 and 2 p.m. to 3, booth #2725). Afterwards, I'll meet up with the wife and son. We'll spend the night at a hotel, and do San Antonio — The Riverwalk, Seaworld, The Children's Museum — on Saturday.
In the meantime, I've continued to add designs to my collection with DAISIE (rocket ships, astronauts and safari themes). Through their online forums, I've introduced myself to the DAISIE team and customers. What a lively and enthusiastic group of people. Now, help an artist put his son through private school and...go buy some stuff.
