I’ve been doodling around on odosketch, which is an online drawing application, that tries to emulate natural media, it has a great Scott Campbell kind of palette and is mucho fun to fiddle about on. Best of all, with the press of a button you get to see your drawing… being drawn, in a replay, stop motion kind of animation… I’m a sucker for that kinda thing.
‘Nao news’ just in… I heard back from Mrs. Shelly Bond at DC Vertigo, who was right up for doing it after seeing the first eleven pages… but Karen ‘Big Boss’ Berger thought it “too indie” for them… which is fair enough. I hadn’t originally thought that they would be the best publishers for it, but Shelly did a real good job of convincing me of their merits, so I kinda got into it. And I do think it would’ve been fun to work with Shelly again. But we had to wait for Mrs. Berger to come back from her summer vacation before the final rejection could be delivered.
Not to worry. It wasn’t meant to be. And now I feel all the more determined to get cracking on the first draft… but not until I’ve faffed around a bit, doodled in online applications and sorted out my wife’s birthday present.
Onward and upwards
