I have a few notes of interest today. First, I came across this interesting blog post about Neil Gaiman’s Eight Rules of Writing. It’s definitely worth reading. Rule number three really caught my eye:
3. Finish what you’re writing. Whatever you have to do to finish it, finish it.
Anyway, as for Sunnyville Stories, I have some more good news. The thumbnails are coming along well. I hope to finish them before the day is out. Sam and Rusty will have a bigger role in this story, but it will still focus on the Talbots and Donna Mason. I’m also practicing drawing Cerebus the Aardvark; he’ll be appearing as a background character cameo. I find the earth pig quite tricky to draw.
A few more orders with Brodart Company have been filled. This would indicate that more libraries will be picking up Sunnyville Stories Volume 2. If you are interested in having your local library carry my books, please get in touch with Brodart, Ingram, or Baker & Taylor.
If all goes well, I can have a few pencilled pages up soon.
That’s it for today. I welcome your fan letters and commentary. You can email me at maxwestart(at)gmail.com or you can write to:
