Well, now that I'm on an extended "vacation" until March, I've been hard at work trying to get the house picked up and re-organized. I've got a list of projects a mile long (as usual). But last night, I was a bit at loose ends since the first issue of Wooden Iguana is over and I needed a new "down-time" project. Yeah, yeah, I know. It's not some protestant work ethic, trust me. I was raised Catholic. (But don't talk to me about Pope Rat ... that man ... grrrrr comments/angry.gif ) It's that whole ADHD thing, yanno. If I'm not working on about three or four projects at once, I'm bored out of my gourd. Seriously. My partner cringes every time I finish a project, whether it's a book or a bit of sculpture or finish getting a room organized. Literally the instant I'm done ... "I'm boreded." It just flies out of my mouth. Ooozes from my pores.

What? Oh yeah. So last night, I just was not quite ready for bed. The Night Squirrels were doing laps in my brain and I finally got up so as not to drive my poor partner batty. I mean any battier than I already drive her. So ... I got up, finished re-reading the last Harry Potter book. (What? I had mental indigestion from swallowing that tome in about five hours or so ... I needed to go back and actually carefully read the thing.) Anyhow ... I decided to do a little inking of Li'l Muerto. Which kinda morphed into some character sketching as well.

Not exactly sure where I'm going with Paprika's hair. I'm starting to think colour instead of b/w. I'm torn tho, because I was really enjoying the idea of the b/w strip. But ... it's the web ... colour doesn't cost. Maybe I'll leave Li'l Muerto himself solid b/w and colour the others. Hmmm.

And I'm sure Scott's head is going to go thru some more changes. I'm not keen on the top or the bottom just yet.
