New images have just gone up on Kristophe in two folders, so have a look. We have also introduced a new character, who will not be appearing for a while and we are keeping his future role under cover, for now. If you would like to meet the young man who's personality and visage were used for our new Paris D'Agivnon (the tall blond in the 'Size Matters' image in our 'Whimsy' folder), then stop by his MySpace and say hi! David Paris is a very nice sort of chap and we are certain you will find him as delightful as we did.

KJ is working on creating the cover for his new book, and thought he had the perfect image for it, but, alas, fate interruptus took that option away. You can read excerpts of the first book at: KJ's Books . Even with all that we are working on, the book should be ready for publication in August.

Our comic has taken on a life of its own, and with the detail that we are putting into it, in black/white and colour, it has become an immense project. We are still hoping to keep to our deadline, but quality will be our first concern.

DDM bought himself a fun car to tool around in, when the studio makes him nuts, although KJ tends to think it's the cats disturbing his psyche more than anything. Soon, we may hear the pitter patter of dog feet on studio floor.

We hope everyone is having a great summer, and remember to play safe out there.

Well, now. Is it really summer, or just the beginning of the forty days and forty nights? One part of Europe is in a heat wave, and the northern part is in full on rain/flood mode. Has anyone seen locusts on the horizon? Let us know, if you do. DDM has been building an ark, but the two-by-twos he has in mind might cause a bit of unrest at the Vatican.

Tonight, we posted two new images on Kristophe in the 'Boys of St. Precocious' file. We think they are interesting images, and we hope they prompt a chuckle or two.

KJ is just about finished with the proofreading of his first book of short stories, and we will have the new site for his books up, on July 12th, at KJ's Books and he hopes to have it in print by the fall of 2007. He is also trying to finish three other books, and this project we are working on, as well as... well, let's just say that he is losing more hair than the cats, these days. Maybe he needs a holiday...

We also ran across this little tidbit of a duet, followed by an amazing piece of choral/orchestral music. Great music is just that - great - and to withstand the test of time will require a certain magic.

Someday, Kristie and the boys will sing for everyone. Unfortunately, no one will be able to hear them. Comics, you know.

Let us know your thoughts, and it is much easier for us if folks leave messages on the site, or the blog, rather than email, as the answers we provide to one can sometimes answer questions for many, and thereby save time for us to draw/write. The volume has picked up to the point that it is a challenge to keep up with the emails, and we will continue to do our best.

We thank you all for your wonderful support and kind words. Have a safe and wonderful summer!
