Two wee notes re: GND right now. Firstly,
and thanks at all the lovely lovely feedback and people getting invested in latest story twist. It's been a delight to watch reactions and debates.
Second point of order, sorry to say, Louisa and I are a tad behind on the page due this week; update tomorrow at very best. Apologies.
Aaand speaking of Louisa and the wonderful work she does, now might be the time to say how the MMORPG she and her studio have been working on for a long time has been greenlit and is now available on Steam
is all classic fantasy RPG goodness, completely free to play, and full of Louisa's gorgeous visuals, so anyone into that sort of thing should definitely go check em out, or like their fb page
, and generally be supportive! I was privy to certain behind-the-scenes tales and I have to point out that Louisa spent some time fighting tooth and nail against various ridiculous bikini armour female chara designs and deserves all the kudoses for that.
Me, I'm starting up volume 3 of Alyssa, The One With The School Trip (to London), so yay for contracted work continuing. I've also been working on a short 9-page story based on a historical character and set in 1830s Lyon, for a local publishing collective. Experimenting with traditional inking again, HAHA HA eek. I'll post some of that here soon. My story involves a lackadaisical* local cop being partnered up with a rather more fanatical and suspicious-minded political agent from Paris on a mission to keep a very beady eye on the workers' collectives and dissident royalist branches (I gorged on research, and have a local university history lecturer to help
), and so the latter is basically Javert.
(* Yes I am watching 'Gotham', and yes I know/love/follow/own vol.1 of Lackadaisy Cats)
