and and... Leo just turned four!!!

also, we're getting close to the Auction for the Sketchtravel book. Go check their really cool website and blog :
You can also support the good cause (all the proceeds go to the charity 'Room to read') by buying the book on amazon in its wooden case or by itself....

Here are the contributions by Nicolas de Crecy and Hayao Miyazaki...
Needless to say, the book has tons of great artwork and the blog of the project is updated every day with samples of the pages. Go check it out!

here's my travisty's beard of the month. It's a tribute to 'The meaning of night', a great book by Michael Cox which starts with ' After killing the red-haired man, I took myself off to Quinn's for an oyster supper.'

On a different front, we're VERY busy with Solomon's thieves which is now called 'Templar.' The third book is going to be 180 pages.(that is quite a lot more than books 1 and 2 which are each around 130-140 pages long.) That means the whole thing is going to be now around 460 pages. and that's without the extra pages including afterwords, extra artwork etc.... That book is going to be a door stopper! (can also be used as a lethal projectile.)
The big question is when is is going to be done. Soon we hope. Around the end of the year is our current forecast.
We'll post more artwork from book 3 when we have a minute....
