End of chapter 2. I’m going to pull another George RR Martin and put this on hold for a while. I was hoping to have more of the story uploaded before that happened, as most of what I’ve posted this spring was actually drawn last summer and this winter, but it’s been a busy year for me. I’ve got the story written, but the drawing is the time-consuming part.Although I’m off on summer break and don’t start teaching again until September, I’ve got something else to keep me busy. About a year ago I was contacted by “Wimpy Kid” creator Jeff Kinney (awesome person!), who was interested in having me illustrate for his other big franchise, Poptropica. This past year I illustrated a Poptropica comic strip, which has started running in several different places, and now I’ve got a larger Poptropica project that’s going to require my full attention this summer.I’d love to do LSS full-time and post stories uninterrupted, but LSS just doesn’t make the money to do that, and I certainly couldn’t pass up a chance to illustrate projects for a franchise like Poptropica. I’ll work on “Cork” here and there and hopefully start posting new chapters again at some point in the fall.
So maybe most of you will be back in the fall for more of the story. I’m having fun with this one.
