Happy New Year Everyone! Yea! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season. Christmas with my family was good and the kids (including Spam and I) have really enjoyed playing with their new games and toys. My son has been particularly interested in that 2008 is a new year. He keeps making the year with the magnetic numbers he has on the refrigerator.

So, what’s in store for everyone in the coming year here at QFB? I have set some goals for myself which I really hope to accomplish, such as becoming better at doing backgrounds and group settings. I have become pretty good with doing single person shots, now I want to improve my group shots. Hence, during the break, I have done a lot of research for the comic. Ask Spam. He will tell you that at one point, I was studying four manga series from my own library, and seven more that I have been reading from either the library or my local manga shop. I hope that my study and practice begin show in the comic. The other goal I have is not to give up on doing those pesky backgrounds. For example, I tossed a tree in today’s comic. Not bad right? However, I kept having a nagging feeling that the background needed more. That meant more rifling through old QFB pages to see what exactly was outside the Mosaic house and the wall that surrounds the house found its way onto the page.

I am also experimenting with coloring and drawing technique. Please stand by if there are any technical difficulties. :)









Hey everyone!!

Happy New year!!

I hope that everyone’s new year has started in a positive way.

I know that this is the time for everyone to make New Years Resolutions, and I am one of those who do that as well. I have two mail resolutions for this year. The first one is probably one of the most common resolutions, and that is to loose weight and exercise more. I need more of the exercise than anything, but I know that the weight will go down as I exercise more.

The other resolution is to come on the forums more often. This is one of those that I will need help with. If you are a member or join the forums and notice that I am not on at least once a week, please email me at and I’ll do my best to get on again as soon as I can.

On the forum note, I am looking for people to join the forums and make it active again. Purple and I like talking to each other, but it is more fun when we can get other people involved as well. I hope to see you all there.

Thank you for reading the comic and joining the forums.

Happy Friday!!!
