Tonight I got the kids in bed and got to work. The timing was just right. The editing had risen sufficiently like a nice Russian kulich. :) I drafted the storyboard to the side of the stances with more certainty of the flow and what should accompany the final wording. I've counted a total of 16 illustrations. Ten large two-page spanning illustrations and 6 small spot illustrations. Some would be slight changes from one to the other....and I am hoping that we can still get this released this year. But time goes so so fast.
I also recently won a free logo design. I am debating whether to use it for my series or to give/donate it to someone that could maybe use it more. I really like my logo, but maybe it could be tweaked/simplified in some magical way..... I may just use it. It came to me for a reason, right?
For me June will go really fast. I have a training class and travel to attend to for work. I am hoping that Helena with the longer daylight hours can make good progress now with my final draft and the updated story board in hand. Next for me is re-submitting and it going through the grammar and punctuation editing, or what they call the heavy lifting editing.
I just know this is going to be magnificent. I can't wait to see it all coming together and be working with the layout team. It's just a matter of time.
