Jack is being torn between his lust for his girlfriend's growth, and protecting her from Guy's relentless and annoying giantess fandom. Brandon, in the meanwhile, continues to try to help things from falling apart — even when the military arrives.

grOw/cOmic#5, page 55 completed!

Page 55, the final page to issue 3 of grOw/cOmic#5, has been completed! I have also drawn and started to ink the cover of issue 4 (which appears at the end of the issue). In addition, I have already begun the proofreading and correcting over this past weekend. We're almost there! I hope to have a release very soon! For now, enjoy the preview, which (as usual) I had to make somewhat vague so as to not give away the ending of the chapter.

grOw/cOmic#5, page 54 completed!

Surprise!  I was making great progress on the next page, so I decided to continue working late and complete page 54, just one day after the last. It was definitely not an easy page, so the quick turn around was the result of a lot of extra work. Sorry for a slightly more vague cropping of the preview this time, but we are getting to the end of the issue, and I don't want to reveal too much. Speaking of end of issue, there is only 1 page and 1 cover to go! The cover, of course, is for issue 4, which appears as a sneak preview at the end of issue 3. We are almost there!

grOw/cOmic#5, page 53 completed!

Page 53 proved to be quite the detailed page, with multiple panels, plenty of faces and characters, lighting effects, and lots of overlapping action. Though I had originally hoped to have finished it yesterday, I was finally able to complete it early this afternoon. Only 2 more pages (and the cover to issue 4) to go! Hang in there!

grOw/cOmic#5, page 52 complete!

This was a detailed page, and required lots of work — especially with lighting. But page 52 is another one that I am proud of. Chip, chip, chip — I am working steadily closer to the end. Only 3 pages to go!

It was a good day few days to stay inside and work. The region is still recovering from Superstorm Sandy. On top of that, we just walloped by another nor'easter that dumped 4-6 inches of snow with 30-40mph winds and below freezing temperatures — not fun for the 200,000+ households/businesses without power for 9 days straight, nor those with holes in their homes. Unless you have a fireplace, no electric means no heat. Gas lines are still long, too! And not just for cars, as people wait in hours-long lines for gas for their generators to keep warm. How bad is the shortage? Check out this site:  Make sure the "All stations" is chosen from the po-up menu in the upper-left.  Red is a station with no gas, green with. (Or, just look at the attached screenshot)  You will see its about a 5:1 ratio.

grOw/cOmic#5, page 51 completed!

It's been a long week, but I was finally able to complete page 51. The power gods were nice to me and let me have electricity for most of the week, having lost only about 8 hours on the day Hurricane Sandy hit. 90% of the 1.1 million of the customers for the Long Island Power Authority lost power (about 25% are still without power now 6 days later) — so I count myself extremely lucky.

This page was another detailed one, with matching the drawings to the background taking some time, as well as the detail in each frame. Good page!  Only 4 more pages (and the cover to the next issue ) to go!

No updates this week... Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy came to town for a visit, and boy did she ever outstay her welcome. This was a 100-year event for this region, with huge swaths of devastation. Luckily, we are well with little damage in our very local community, but large areas were severely damaged only a few miles away. With Monday and Tuesday morning being Hurricane days, and Tuesday and Wednesday as clean-up and taking stock of the situation, and then Thursday and Friday recovering and working on "real life" work, I was unable to finish any new pages this week on grOw/cOmic#5, issue 3.  However, I did work on page 51, and was able to make great progress on this detailed page to the point of about 75% completion. Hopefully, next week, we will begin to return to a normal schedule.
