(EDIT: THE FIRST 100 COMIC BOOKS (THE ONES THAT COME WITH A PIN) HAVE SOLD OUT (thank you!), BUT THE LITTLE BOOKS THEMSELVES ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR NOW!
THERE WILL BE A STEADY SUPPLY OF BOTH BOOKS IN THE SHOP UNTIL THEY SELL OUT, SO IF YOU THINK YOU MISSED OUT...JUST CHECK THE SHOP) ;)
So, here are two projects I was hard at work on last month (I hinted about one of them here!). If anyone is sad about not being able to nab anything from the last update, maybe these will cheer you up!
They arrived from the printers (Pinball, and they do beautiful work) last week, and I've been itching to show them off here. The first is a sketchbook, with a cover illustration taken from my own current sketchbook (with a few minor bits changed around):

It is offset-printed on lovely, sturdy chipboard, and is 120 pages full of blank, creamy drawing/ writing paper with a slight tooth. I designed these sketchbooks/journals to be exactly my perfect, portable blank books, and I'm just thrilled with the way they are printed.
They also completed a very special job for me, which is a mini (super-mini, they measure 4"x4" square!) comic based on the little book I made for Josiah last Valentine's day. It is called "Scuppernong and Muscadine" and is the 18-panel story of two hedgehogs who love a lot of differing things.
They are also offset printed, and so very beautiful and polished. The first 100 books also come packaged up prettily in a glassine envelope
with a free one-inch button of a cute matching cottage (the batch with buttons has sold out, but the books are still available for purchase!).
Hop over to the shop to give them a look-see! I hope you like them as much as I do.
