Well, for the time being, until I get the new site up, Drop the Cow has reverted to a blog site about the new work. So, what have I been up to?
Writing, mostly. As it stands now, the new project (I’m not disclosing the title yet) will be – if published in paper as a floppy comic – two volumes, each comprised of four 32-page issues. 32 x 4 = 128, 128 x 2 = 256. Seemed appropriate, since in this story, Penny reprises her role as a nerd/hacker, at least initially. Who or what she is beyond that, she will have to learn as the story progresses.
Also been doing some character (re)design work, and a few sketches – thought I’d post one. It’s just rough pencils, as I need to set up for inking again (wonder if my wife got me a Cintiq for Father’s Day? ), but I’m not displeased with it.
By the way, the tagline isn’t just a lament; it’s the core theme of the new story.
