A Terrible Update
Backers, Philanthropists, and Interested Parties:
I spoke to Jeff briefly this morning, and he's got a couple things on deadline between now and the end of the week. He has promised that once these deadlines are in the can, he's going to lock himself in a large trunk and book passage on a tramp steamer for a trans-Atlantic voyage, during which he'll have ample time to complete the rest of the project.
I pointed out that the swaying of the ship will give the character portraits a Squigglevision look, and that the light might be better outside the trunk. He agreed, and is currently bound for a sandy beach somewhere in the Caribbean. I regret not asking him which beach, as he has absconded with my pen.
I have, however, been promised a postcard, which will serve as a teaser for anyone getting curious. I'll post that when it arrives. And while I do have an idea for when he'll get back from Cabo San Barbados or wherever, I hesitate to make that information public, as I have an intrinsic fear of both Target Dates and Illuminati Ninja.
