tozo meets vern & lettuce

...or, I should say, Klikker meets the bunnies! Here's my guest comic for David O'Connell, or tozocomic, posted on the ultra-stylish Tozo website. It was inspired by the second panel in this strip, where Klikker is 'helping' a drunk party goer with his bottle. I wasn't going to give Dave a Christmas prezzie because we already did a Secret Santa exchange at our comics 'office party'. But I just couldn't resist this one!

Go have a look at Dave's work if you haven't seen it: his Tozo work, his illustration work and also our Airship comic jam. Meeting Dave and getting to know him has definitely been one of the highlights of my year.

Tomorrow my book club's discussing Empress Orchid by Anchee Min. I was doing some quick research and came across this fascinating hour-long interview. Have a listen if you have the time, I think I'm going to listen to it again while I paint.

I've been getting some Christmas photos from my American relatives, and these two are my favourites; Uncle Roy in his new hat and digging out the car. He looks very stoic with his broom:

Sarah how did you colour that picture? the colours razzle-dazzle.

Thanks, Joe! It's just black india ink and watercolour. :-)

razzle-dazzle watercolour?

Yup! I don't know why watercolour gets such bad press.

Sarah, I did a video survey of what the neighbourhood kids loved reading in 2008 and Lettuce and Vern got a mention (admittedly by your number one fan, my daughter). http://notesfromtheslushpile.co.uk/2009/01/thrilling-to-what-kids-read-in-2008.html

love the bunnies!

re: colouring the picture - still waiting for you to do that how to video!

Aw, thanks! Everyone seems to like the bunnies best, even though they only really have a group personality! I do my best to tell them apart but it's kind of tricky; I have to keep a cheat sheet taped to the front of my computer.

Hey, I just posted on SCBWI E-Critique, haven't done that for awhile!
