Wednesday Miscellany: Prayers requested

Codex here with a riddle for you: What do you get when you cross a 55-year-old mushroom and a diving shoulder roll*?

Answer: A half-finished comic and an artist who can neither sit nor stand for very long.

So prayers would be much appreciated, not only for healing, but for finding work-arounds so that if the good Lord in his Wisdom wants me side-lined for a while, the things folks are counting on me to do get done.

(*Another super fun activity like leaping side kicks and tree climbing that Codex is no longer allowed to do. Sigh.)

Saturday Sketches Come to An End

In keeping with The Finality, this will be my last Saturday Sketch*

pencil_sketch_dragon_lying_on_backIt’s the design for an indy book review I was going to do… but didn’t because I gave the book away to a dragon-loving kidlet friend of the yard-ape, who kept it. Yes, I know, just write it up from my notes. Can’t find ’em. Can’t remember the title of the book. Or the author. Surprisingly “dragon” doesn’t really narrow things down as much as one would hope.

But if you ever get a chance to read an indy book about a family of dragons – two brothers and a sister – who are forced out of their territory before they’ve grown enough to defend it from more powerful adult rivals – give it a try. I quite liked it. I particularly appreciated the author’s using alien biology to circumscribe her dragons, they really were another, albeit intelligent species. The hook that kept it familiar and kept the reader sucked in was the sibling dynamics. She nailed that, too.

*Because they’re moving to Wednesday 🙂
