grOw/stOry#11, update 2

Things are moving along on the latest grOw/stOry, "The B.E. InsTITute", albeit much slower than I had hoped. I just completed the 10th of 13 illustrations for the stOry. Although only 3 more to go, I only have 3 more days until my original goal of the end of July. Unfortunately, with my current "real life" workload, this just cannot happen. I also had a (hopefully) small health issue that delayed me -- which I may find out about more this Thursday. (Plus, I had a day off last week to celebrate my birthday.) :)

In either case, my new goal to release the latest stOry will be between Fri Aug 7 and Fri Aug 15. Still to do are: coloring the final 3 illustrations, finalizing the layout of the book (95% done), creating the necessary graphics and page set-ups for the store, and getting the PDF to my Host and having them upload it (which they have been quite good at doing recently... usually 2-3 business days).

I will keep you updated when things get closer to completion. In the meanwhile, enjoy the preview of one of The B.E. Institute's illustrations! (Click it for a larger view..... "mmmm, larger...." )

grOw/stOry#11 update

Again, i have been absent from the blog for a while, but work continues. With the holiday and continuing deadlines with my "real life" work, including squashing the CSS bugs I mentioned in my last post, it has been difficult to make a post. Surprising to me was the amount of time that had passed since the last post.

But in terms of the next grOw/stOry, number 11, newly titled "The B.E. InsTITute", is progressing along. All the pencil drawings are complete for the 13 illustrations, and I just finished coloring 3 of them (one of which, you can preview here). Time is slipping away on me faster than I wished, but I am still hoping for an end of July release.

Enjoy the preview!
