…could probably retitle this with something out of the ole “Miss Musso Excuse File” (quick! name that show). At any rate, I promised someone who commented here a while back a more formal explanation as to why posting hasn’t resumed like I thought it would, and here it is:

Welcome Elliot

You guessed it – my wife and I had our first child a little while back… just go along with the notion that the above characters are not Topo and Mari… kinda like how Miyazaki’s characters all look the same. ;)  That is Swoop, however, standing in for my cat, who was too jealous to be a part of the family moment.

We’ve got our hands full at the moment, as you can imagine, but it has been an incredibly rewarding experience.  That said, I am actively working on roughing out the next chunk of the story.  It’s all there in my head, but I want to get it right, since a few big reveals are juuuust about to happen. Seriously.

See you guys soon!

    Is it intentional that Swoop looks like a campfire in front of that log and tree stump? That’s what I thought it was at first glance.
    Anyway, congratulations on the new addition to the family!

    Congratulations! And what a lovely piece of art to commemorate the event.

    No worries, I’ll still be here whenever you do get back.

    And should you ever eventually decide to raise money on Kickstarter to publish the story (as some other independent comic artists have successfully done), I’ll be supporting the effort.

    I’m sure some people who read this are wondering if your baby is a boy or girl and what you decided to name him/her.

    It’s a boy named Elliot. :)

    *ahem* “Parker Lewis Can’t Lose.” Amazing show. And congratulations. A year late.
