Good Monday Morning to all of you!

Here’s the rough thought I had for the cover of the next TTH. While I have had hang-ups about my overall storytelling abilities lately, I think TTH#4 will be a good restarting point for me and my readers.

One of the stories, “Lost in Transition part Two” will come full circle as part of a rewritten story I did to get into the Center for Cartoon Studies. Originally entitled “Don’t Want Me for a Sunbeam,” the story revolves around my experiences with a certain brand of Christianity, but isn’t a literal memoir. I won’t be completely finishing the story, which I imagine will be a four-parter. The story is very close to my heart and is yet another brick in the wall of an explanation for my becoming a cartoonist.

I’ll be posting some sketches for the stories in days and weeks to come. I’m also going to post the first three pages to the Santorini Vortex part Two when they are ready.

This comic, while being pulled together quickly, has been causing some of the most violent feelings in myself as to if I should or shouldn’t publish it. I’ve listened to voices on both sides advising me to plow forward and to drop it. I’m still going to print it, but maybe only as a very limited run with just enough to sell a few at Mocca. My main concern is that it’s got a tirade by Charles Bukowski I dreamed several years ago that has quite a bit of obscenity in it, and I don’t want to do work that isn’t all ages. This may be the only “Mature Audiences” comic I do in the close future.

More to come this week, keep checking back!

Thanks,

Sam
