Where’s the new story? Well, I’ve got some good news and some bad news.
I’ll start off with the bad. If you’re clicking over here to read Zip and Li’l Bit’s latest story, The Captain’s Quest, which I’d promised to start posting in January, you’ll notice its not up yet. Sadly, Zip and Li’l Bit have had to take a back seat lately because I’ve been really busy working on other projects. I’ll be able to get back to this comic soon though. Unfortunately, I can’t really commit to the date that I can start posting The Captain’s Quest yet because I’m not sure at this point, but I hope to have it online in a couple of months. I’m really sorry about the delay and hope that everyone can bear with me and keep checking back. I’ll do my best to get it going as soon as possible, and promise that it’ll be worth the wait.
Now the good news. I’ve been working on a couple projects lately, other than Zip and Li’l Bit. Not sure what will pan out, but one thing I can tell everyone is that while Zip and Li’l Bit aren’t making it to print just yet, my artwork will be. I’m doing a book for a series called TOON Books, which are published by Françoise Mouly and her husband, Art Spiegelman, on thier RAW Junior imprint. TOON Books are a series of comics for early readers, and if you haven’t read any of them yet and have children, definitely run out and buy a couple. I’ve got them all, and my five year old son loves them. He reads them to us all the time.
Anyway, I’m just now finishing up the book I’m doing for Françoise, and if all goes well, it should be coming out in the Spring of 2010. It’s a bit of a wait, I know, but I’ll have The Captain’s Quest up for you to fill in the time.
