Cary Grant

Christmas is over and I'm not sick anymore -- and believe it or not I've been working on a LOT of stuff but haven't had time to scan anything in and pull it together for the blog. I'm thick in the writing of my next book (tentatively titled 'Super Natural') so I'm writing and doing a lot of research since I'm using real people from history (Harry Houdini, Amelia Earhart and Morgan Earp) so it's taking a while but I've got the first 20 pages written and laid out. I'll start posting that process once I get a little more done. In the meantime, here's a drawing I did of Cary Grant using some new colored inks I got over the summer.

The new project sounds interesting - I'm excited to see it. The turn of the century had so many interesting figures... can't wait to see what you do with 'em!

Thanks! Yeah -- the twist on this story is that it's set in the 1950s -- but since the main characters are ghosts -- they can pretty much be from any era...so the teenage girl character is a super-fan of Amelia Earhart -- but they're both ghosts. Sounds horrible when I type it out but it'll be neat I swear!

First twenty pages written and laid out? Already? You kill me. Please, tell me your secrets. Also, isn't the research fun? I LOVE that part!!!
