Oh, hey, look, it’s almost a story arc! Actually, it’s less of an arc (that would imply building up to something and so forth) and more of a line, but there are more tales to come from this family vacation over Christmas. Continuity rocks!

We all have a purpose in life and some days I’m convinved mine is to entertain through minor tragedy. Sigh… As I was reminded more than once over the last week, I am not one of the world’s most graceful creatures, though I do try. I will say, however, that my gravitational descent was smooth and perfectly level (owing as much to the carry-ons on each shoulder as anything else). If falling was an Olympic sport, this one would have been a 10!

Week 2 using guache instead of watercolors does seem to be working though I really want to go back to simple scenes soon. Please? Oh, who am I kidding; #6 is almost finished but for the last panel details and 7 is presenting a lovely set of perspective issues. 8 and 9 both will require a certain amount of motion panels before 10 finishes out the vacation stories. What can I say? Though difficult [to draw] at times, family is certainly good for a laugh!
