Has this happened to any of the other artists out there? You’re doodling in public, someone sees you working, exclaims that you’re really good and starts either A: demanding that you draw something for them or B: teach either them or someone they know how to draw. If this has happened to you in any sort of way, am I the only one annoyed with these types of reactions? I’ve lost track of the times that random people have asked me to teach either them or someone they know how to draw, or have asked me to draw something for them. I wonder if this happens in other professions, you know, like if someone finds out that you are a plumber then random people start asking you about the inner workings of a kitchen sink and would you please teach them how to avoid the infamous hairball that is clogging the drains? Lol...

Enough for my random ramblings...

This past weekend was wonderful, thank you to everyone who understood that we were leaving the house and would be unable to post anything on the website. We enjoyed ourselves a lot! We went to a Harry Potter release party on Friday night, which was a lot of fun. The best part about the night was dressing up in robes and having several of the younger kids in the crowd exclaiming how cool our costumes were. Granted, there were many other fans who had much cooler costumes than us, but still it was so fun! I had a book on hold at the bookstore and was within one of the first 150 people to get book 7. Hooray! I was up until 2:30 that morning reading and forced myself to go to bed, telling myself that I could keep reading in the morning. Bright and early Saturday morning, I was up and reading again. Yeah, I’ve already finished the book, but I won’t spoil it for anyone who’s still working their way through the story., *cough, cough* Spam *cough, cough* Crystalorange *cough, cough* :)

I think I finally have the story for QFB going in the right direction, yea! I actually wrote myself into a hole, so I’ve spent the last several comics madly digging my way back out. Hopefully, I won’t do that again in the near future.

"And I thought they smelled bad on the outside!!" -- Harrison Ford in StarWars: Empire Strikes Back

I thought for sure that I would have more time to rant and play around on the forums during the summer. So far that hasn't happened. It has been a really busy summer. I actually had to force myself to take a week (most of one anyways) off so that I could recharge. Unfortunately, I still have not caought up with everything I need to do at home.

There is one thing that I need to say to everyone that has been checking in with us during this time. Thank you!!!! Have a good couple of weeks!! :)
