It was fun doing something different with this strip ... floating frames in blackness. For the most part Character Development is based around a simple 3 x 3 page format, so cutting loose with some crazy layouts was refreshing.

A new episode starts tomorrow ... and it's one of my favourites.

I've just finished scripting episode 31. I need to find time to take some more photos soon, but the scripts I'm way ahead on.

Meanwhile I'm writing some other scripts in my 'spare' time (that's the time when my kids aren't driving me spare).

It's the little things you miss when you're away from home. Like drunken debauchery at your favourite sleazy watering-hole.

Having one of those days when the aim is to get to the other side. I feel like a squashed chicken.

I've been having fun writing something completely removed from CD for the last two weeks. But soon it's back to the scripting of the CD episodes in the thirties, and to taking photos of the episodes in the late teens and twenties.

A new episode starts tomorrow.
