The Joy of a Supportive Wife(Road to CAKE part 4)

To encourage me while working towards CAKE, my wife made me this awesome calendar. She gave it to me on May 16, or 31 days before the expo. It's basically a countdown that includes encouraging messages like:

She made it so that I could tear the pages out everyday, but I didn't want to destroy it. Instead, I put rings in it and hung it over my drawing desk.

I figure I can reuse the calendar when I'm on some other 31-day deadline.
Also, today is actually 24 days from CAKE, so I'll have to update my Calendar when I get back to my desk.

Anyway, I'm really lucky to have such a sweet, supportive wife. This calendar is also a reminder of that!

You can see a comic I'm working on in this picture called "Everyone Hates Their Job" (Which I know is not grammatically correct, so save it!) and is a little different from anything I've done before. I'll be posting that soon.

Since this is a "Road to CAKE" article, I better post a picture of a cake. My daughter's third birthday was a week ago, so here is the Shaun the Sheep cake we made for her.

Onward to CAKE!! (Part 3)

I just finished the class I was teaching this term (I teach at a local paralegal program) and I don't have to teach another class until October. This will free up time to work on my comics for CAKE. Boy, do I need it.

I have been working, no worries. In fact, I'm almost finished with a new Bone Dog page. A friend of mine generously upgraded the RAM on my computer for me, and I just got it back. That means I can scan some art. I have a couple pages I've been holding back and I not really sure why. I decide a while ago that I should post them, but my aforementioned computer was away getting its innards fixed. Expect to see those pages soon.

Also, here is my new ghetto-ass light box:

Old record bin +  Ikea light + sheet of plexiglass = awesome light box!

CAKE is only a month and a half away. Better get to it. Here is another cake, this time for my youngest son's recent 1st birthday. Don't forget to like CAKE on Facebook, you bums!!
