We made it through November! The year is winding down and it’s end is near. I know that for all you people in the U.S. the last few days have been mad. Personally, I am thankful that my wife is Canadian because Thanksgiving is way back in October for us and it gives me more time to recover from the Turkey overdose before Christmas. Half my family being swedish, we have a tradition of celebrating Jul the swedish way, on the 24th. On the 25th, we take a break and on the 26th we have a Turkey dinner. When I was a kid, that was the day we got together with the other branch of my family, the Dutch side. And the 26th was my grandmother’s birthday so the festivities served a double purpose…
December does feel like slowing down for me and is (usually) a relaxing period. I’m not big on the whole new year thing as far as the party goes, but hey, each is own!
As I have mentioned before, I will be using some of the time to work on the new Captain Wayne website, the buffer, Volume 2 and experimenting with some funky colouring techniques like in this version of the first strip of Trouble on P57-Exodus:
There’s some touches I like there, but it’s far from what I’m really looking for. It’s interesting to explore new avenues, though. I like to think it keeps me on my toes!
To conclude, here’s a little sketch from a fellow artist, Daniel Barton. Daniel creates the webcomic Goober and Cindy, hosts the podcast The Webcomic Show and is also a musician who creates his own stuff! Check out his website at www.gooberandcindy.com! His interviews are top notch and his comic never fails to put a smile on my face!
I’m planning to put together another Jul themed illustration for the holidays. In the meantime – and it still is early days – here is last year’s:
Have a great start of the week and see you on Thursday yet again. We might find out more about that reckless driver…
