I've also tried to avoid rehashing the worn out designs for monsters, but rest assured that goblins, orcs and other staples of your basic dungeon will show up as I go along!

I think it’d be nice to see what kind of rad adventures a brainy, kinda nosy, science-minded detective girl could have.
(Edited to add a couple more which I posted on my tumblr.)

Part of bee husbandry is management of parasites. Rolling the bees in powdered sugar and then shaking them makes any clingy Varroa mites drop off to be counted.
Amber shot this quick video while I scooped up more bees in a tupperware.
I counted zero mites, so yay!

Above is the cover of the minicomic I had available at ECCC earlier this year. This was the story that appeared in Vol. 1 of the B.O.D. Quarterly Anthology I mentioned before. I wanted to make the print edition a little different from the version that appeared in the anthology, so I inclulded some development art, like the sketch on the back cover. (Sharp eyes will catch a pokeball, which will not appear in the story at all.)
Every night, after the boys go to bed, I draw something on their lunch bags for the next school day. The last week I decided to tease them with story moments from upcoming chapters of "Little." These are those.

Extra special bonus, I officially became the step-dad of those two ladykillers in the three-piece suits.
It was a perfect day.

I wanted to hop online with a bit of a non-art-related update. In addition to frantically trying to plan our wedding, Amber and I have also been preparing for this last weekend, when we adopted 20,000 new bees. We had had bees before, but had taken a year (or two?) off after they froze to death.(!) In fact, if we were livejournal friends, this whole post is going to look familiar. Anyhow, this time, we're determined to do it right, and build up enough bees and honey to last them through the winter.
As soon as we had a nice weekend, we started building and painting a couple of hives.
I spent a little time every free evening putting together frames, and this weekend we got the email saying "Your bees are here, come get 'em!" So we drove off Saturday morning to put six pounds of bees in the trunk. I keep the hives at my mom's house, about half an hour outside of Seattle. I'm just gonna dump a bunch of photos on you. Click on any one of them to see the whole set on flickr.
So now we let the hives accept their new queens, and we check on them in 5 or 6 days. Hopefully they'll turn a bunch of sugar into wax, and she can start laying eggs!
