Sunday, June 28th

I've sent out 8 boxes by mail yesterday. Would have liked to send more but I raided the post office of their small boxes until they ran out.
Eight was all they had.
I'll raid another post office this week on my way to work.

Remember: if you have drawn a gift art for the book, send me a mailing adress where I can send you your copies. Contact me via PM, DA notes or email for those of you who have it.

This afternoon, have to draw something not Zhao or work related. How's that for a change?
Guess I'll put some Water Tribe pages up before I do that.

...this is all I have to show.




If Aku looks a bit uneasy in Panel 5 of the second page, it is mostly because of Li-Yi's casual tone. The man talks about punishment as if he's talking about making a sandwich for lunch.
That's the way I hear it in my head.
Third page is all cramped and has no atmosphere. Dialogue is Blerg.
I keep repeating myself these are just notes- get the information out.
Not quite out of the drawing funk, but it's a start.

"And after making a horrific example out of Zhao, I think I might have some tea. Possibly a cookie. Oh, a macadamia nut cookie would be delicious. Yes, I think I'll do that."

Tea and a little dessert after an execution.
Sounds lovely.

Barefoot Contessa, meet the Bespectacled Sadist.

That is a hilarious/horrifying/hilarious mental image, and I'm going to be stuck with that at work all day now. Thank you.

Thanks for inspiring it.

Barefoot Contessa offers a plate of macadamia nut cookies to Li-Yi, who tells her how much he appreciates it after a long day, and proceeds to casually tell how he dispatched Zhao.

Uh oh. Li-Yi mentioned trouble with the ship. I sense mechanical failure in the future!

Zhao trying to figure it all out is great. He always either jumps to the wrong conclusions or is a few steps behind. ;)

I sent you a PM over livejournal for my address on Friday since that's how I first contacted you with my gift art. If you didn't get my message, I can send it again. ^_^

For once, Zhao may have figured it out.
Or did he?

I did get your pm- your copies will be sent out on the next mailing wave when I get more boxes.

Not that Zhao is in any position now to convince anyone of anything...

Funny you mentioned Aku expression... I read the pages before reading your comments and I had noticed his great facial expression... the kind one would want to animate :)

:thumbsup:

If Aang is with the Southern Water Tribe, which is also where Zhao was heading, there's a good chance he may actually be in the right, this time.

such a amazing comic
hello, i have read your avatar comics for a long time. they are really great and fascinating. you draw very much like the series look.
i hope you're not bad, but there is a little mistake. on the second page on the lefthand panel below. the fire nation soldier is bowing but i know the fire nation people hold their hands a little bit diffrent from that version you have drawn. your version looks more like the earth kingdom version, only the hands are swapped. i dont know if it really is a mistake or if you intended to make it look like diffrent. the fire nation people hold their left hand above their right hand and not besides it as you can see it on aang in the episode the headband and on other fire nation people in more episodes.
i hope you understood what i mean, cause my english is not the best. thanks for drawing such a awesome comic. it is so great, they should make it into a series like a book four. keep on, you rock.
greets from germany,

Re: such a amazing comic
You are totally right about the hand placement- my mistake! When I put an idea down quickly on paper (or in this case, Cintiq), I don't always double check details like that and bam! Screw up.
Thank you for pointing it out!
(thanks for taking the time to read me comic ramblings, ha ha!)

Thanks Ruffy! You're the best!

Did I give you my gift art related Mailing Address? I think I did. I don't know if your post office does this, but I do a lot of book mailing through mine, and I get them to special order mer big wads of boxes whatever size I request, and they just give them to me. I'm hoarding them in my garage and building a fort. Also I sometimes use them for mailing. Ask and ye may recieve!

Please, send me your mailing address again, just in case.
I've asked the post office for this very specific box size they have which is perfect, but they don't seem to be in too much of a rush to get more from their main office. Booooh!!
I'll keep raiding their office every other day. Managed to get 3 more this morning (wah, only 3!)

At the moment, maybe... And Zhao may not know what's actually going on, either!

Li-Yi likes kids, and not just Fire Nation kids, that's a plus for him. His dedication for Zhao rivals Zuko... nay, not yet. ^_^
