All cut and ready to print on Thursday.

First proof. Over half way cut but had to see what it was turning out like. Became all about the cutting. Forgot it had to be printed. Not too bad so far, needs some tightening up around the trees and things. Back to the cutting. Print deadline next Thursday. I have engaged the esteemed help of martinkochany for that task.

Had to take this home to work on. Trying meet deadline for Manchester Contemporary submissions. Check out the Punch and Judy show on the beach, the monster in the lake, the steam train and the lovers on the bridge. Still need to do the churches and the water stuff, cellars and caves and decide what is happening with the background. Pretty sure I’m going to drop the flying machine/hot air balloon, throws the perspective off too much.

Getting one of the main characters right.

10 random penciled pages from my graphic novel 300 Days of the Red Khan. This is also taking a while like my linocuts. Hoped to have the first episode inked by now, but I’ve still got about 15 pages to pencil first. Started planing episode 3 and 4 though, so not all slow going. Still fun.
