The enchanted sword!

Allo there! Been a while! ho humm.

Well Abes just been doing a great many nothings recently, managed t' keep up with the daily comic tho', also been a working on several stories (though none of the ones from the last post have made it past page eight or so... boo) as well as rewriting my story for the larger piece... 

I sent the pitch off a wee while back, and recieved a polite, well worded (minimalist) rejection, No big surprises there, it needs work! So instead of my 200 or so pager, im'na try and keep it to bare bones... scale it back to around 48 pages, and cut the cast somewhat.  Heres the rough cover idea anyhow...
Needs work. but thats all fine. just gotta keep on at it! 

I also recently got a giant sketchbook, in which I'm working (a page a day) on a modern fairytale. I've written out the story for once, so now the hard part comes... conveying the narrative in pictures. I'll let ye know.

anyhow... I find this video of the the great Daniel Johnston pretty heartbreaking, his medication saving and destroying him at the same time.
