sheep swap!

Gary and I were whinging across the studio how we've fallen behind on coming up with new stuff for our blogs. So we decided to herd Derek the Sheep and Vern into one ongoing comics jam. We'll move Derek to Vern's cosy block of flats, and thrust Vern out into the wild of Derek's field. (Vern was getting a bit chubby from Christmas, he could use some fresh air.) Here's the cover for our mini comic:

Good news! I just got a date for the publication of Vern and Lettuce in book form... September 30th!

I've finished almost everything and sent it off to Laurence Beck, who's putting together all the last bits of layout stuff in his studio on the other side of London. I even got a little peek at the cover-in-progress for Mo-Bot High, another DFC Library book coming out about then, by Neill Cameron ... it's looking fabulous!!!

Exciting, I can't wait to see Vern and Lettuce running around in a book! John Aggs was plugging for Neill's robots and Vern and Lettuce to meet at some point, or make Vern and Lettuce robotic... (We'll have to talk, Neill.)
