Sorry for my extended period of absence. For starters ugh... this
page was truly an unlucky number 13. It started out smoothly
enough, but then it was all down hill from when something got smeared on
it. There are nasty black globs on every panel and it's going to
be a bitch to fully clear this up. >.<; The drawings themselves
proved to be far more tedious than I had imagined and I dunno... my mind
just isn't working. I have a lot on my plate right now, what with
having to catch my five feral feline friends. It's starting to get
quite cold and the kittens are growing up. They really need to come
inside so they can get more quality time with people and learn how to be
good little house kitties. This of course has become my obligation,
and it's quite a hard task. So far all my attempts have just succeeded
in making them hate me. In other news my old hosting site seems to
be trying to come back to life and possibly fleece me again. It took
some work but I was finally able to salvage my own domain name. Yay!
Someday Mewtopia.net will return. I'm just glad that weight is finally
off of me. I also took some time to clam down by playing Disgaea.
Laharl kicks ass. I need to get with some cross training of my characters
in that to get good replicas for ones in my story. I mean... right
now Scrue is my axe wielding warrior and Ariel's an ice mage. Not
very on the mark at all. Oh and as you may have noticed the message
board is dead... again. ;_; Geez... this will be what... our 5th
board restart? In the meantime you can try Keenspace's.

As you might have noticed I did finally get that page colored.
Now if only I could say the next was coming along smoothly. Ah..
at any rate, I do have the translated version of that Rikou
comic up now. You can find it here,
July 30, 2003 on the calendar. Why July 30th? Well because
that's my birthday and I wanted to have something posted on it. Hey
it's my comic, I'm allowed to be that foolish.
August 21, 2003
Well I've got it up now at least. Sorry about that, if things
had gone normally I could have gotten it done. Everything was going
smoothly until I got out of work. I came home to find the kittens
gone; apparently their mom had moved them while I was at work. It
was very upsetting so I made it my mission of the day to find where those
kitties had gone. While doing that some random guys came along and
wanted to buy my Mom's camaro. She didn't really want to sell it
right now, and said she wanted to wait until the weekend but Dad went and
sold it right from under her nose anyway. Needless to say a big fight
ensued and life was sucky here for the evening. I spent the next
few hours telling whomever I caught online about the kitten part of things,
and then I scanned the comic and started the tweaking. Now it's 6
AM and I'm going to call it a night. The rest I can worry about tomorrow.
Hopefully things will go smoother then. Ah, but who am I kidding?
I'm a beacon for disaster.

Well right now everything on the latest page is drawn except for one
hand pose. Ah... I could have gotten it done if I hadn't been spending
so much time socializing the five feral cats (well one young cat and her
four kittens) that have come to live in my backyard. I want to get
them familiar with people so I'll be able to catch them, then socialize
them more and find them loving homes. ;_; It's a daunting task,
but they are so cute!
Ah... so I ran out of time on the page, but I really do just have that
little more to do. So I'll make sure I have it for when I get home
(6 PM) and get something postable by 8. Catch you then!

Pretty typical for me. I make a promise then things all go horribly
wrong. Ugh... it was bad enough that I didn't get a day off this
week until Thursday, but on top of that I saved over the freaking' page
twice and had to start back from scratch fixing things and coloring.
It was a real pain and it slowed things down on top of not having any free
time. Then I got hit with that MSBlast worm, and it shut down my
computer and caused me to lose work as well as screwed up some programs
that I happened to be updating at the time. I had to spend one night
prepping a CD with the patch on it because I couldn't get online to download
it myself, and then I had to help my brother with it too. I've been
busy feeding a stray cat too. She has four kittens and I feel bad
for her being hungry and all alone. I'd love to take her in, but
I can't until she clears quarantine. Can't endanger the health of
my other three kitties. There was something else that needed fixing
too, but this week has pushed it out of my mind. Bah... it's just
been irritating. Then finally I was about to finish coloring this
stupid thing last night, but I found about 5 other glaring omissions I
had over looked and it was already 4 AM and I decided to sleep and fix

Damn am I disappointed. The drawing was going okay, though the
plotting of this page beat the bloody snot out of me. Unfortunately
at the end even the drawing turned on me and there are quite a few dodgy
parts I deplore and will be redrawing in work tomorrow. I already
redrew a few things, but I have to go get some sleep. So bear with
it for now, and I'll work on it more later. Hopefully I'll have the
colored page up by Sat or Sun.
July 25, 2003
Ah... what a relief! I got all my editing done after working all
day (it took about twelve hours today to fix up all 7 panels, and about
eight the night before to get all the text fixed up)! I wanted to
have the colored page up today, but I'm just too drained after all that,
it's nearly six so if I go to bed right now I might be asleep long
enough to have some crazy evils dreams. Nights always seem more fulfilling
with them. However, I'm going to make coloring this page top priority
once I get home. It shouldn't take more than two hours to get that
done, and I get in around 7, unless I do anything before coming home.
No promises there, so say it might be up at 9, or if I go a bit later.
Either way it will be here by Saturday. Good, good. Oh yeah,
and cleaned off the news page. It was getting to lengthy.
Oh yeah and the Keenspace
Forum still has to be linked here.
