I went to the printers and it turns out it’s actually rather affordable to print stuff! Like this fantastic little thing I spent so long making:
Clicking this shows you an image but half the size of the original. If you were keen for a signed print, I can do this for you at the following $US rates (not including shipping):
A3 for $8
A2 for $21
A1 for $40
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_size for inch conversions)
Contact me for details! (Or if you have a burning desire for the full size but don’t want a print, I will probably just email you the file.)
What’s that? Wish the Champs de moutarde movie didn’t have all those annoying characters and pesky words, so you could just gaze upon the backdrops? Never fear! By very kind request, I have here some of the scenery images. Click for full size (unfortunately not very large).
Or did you want to listen to that great piano playing I did without the rude fade-outs and silly accompanying visual distractions? Go here.
(Also a .gif file with that slight breeze)
Get involved. The movie Champs de moutarde will indeed be shown later. Want to help make it? Submit panels of 800×600 (or on that scale) and I will use at least the best three in the movie, and link to your site! To submit: post a link here in the comments to your uploaded image, or contact me, or post on the discussion forum. You can submit as many as you’d like.
What sort of panel? It can be whatever you want! I reserve the right to use more than three, in fact. If you would like dialogue, please include it separately, as I’ll be making dialogue in French and putting subtitles on the bottom.
There will be at least one update between then and now so this is open
for the next THREE DAYS until the second trailer goes up, roughly on the 27th. YAY and GOOD LUCK!
I did this about twice as quickly (and as roughly) as normal, but I think it’s still passable. (The original photo is way awesomer.) Click for full size.
Do you have curly hair? I’d love to draw you if you think you could send me 3 good shots all with your hair well lit. I could really use the practice! (I’ll send you a super-large original version of the image too!) Contact me.
This is the closest to heaven I might come, sitting in my hometown in early December, sipping a warm beverage, working on a fascinating project, glancing up to watch the snow fall.
It is so close, in fact, that I gather it must actually be heaven. For about the past 10 years I have been existing in the Promised Realm. We are all in it. It is fantastic.
Every person is a snowflake; every snowflake has a spirit. Some drift in lazy circles down to the pavement, others rush madly to the forest on a nearly-horizontal gale. Some come in clumps, never parting from their companions as they fall to the grass, still others melt long before their descent ends on a rooftop.
It seems that these traits — the type of path, the landing spot, the size and shape — are the vital characteristics. That this is what matters. “We are all unique.”
True! But this is not what should define us. For in the end, we all melt. We are all borne of cloud and we are all destined to ocean. We ARE the oceans. To consider us as unique flakes is a part of the beauty of the fall, but this is a transient state, a temporary, momentary, oft-repeated blink in the life cycle of the oceanparts.
And here I sit watching these fragile oceansnows fluffing down, visible against the graceful, embracing treeforms, the inverted roots of what holds the soil together and makes this place home.
Right now, perfectly now, perfectly home.
Today is a special day: today the actual wanderblue story starts. That’s Fred, shouting to himself on the couch — this will update less often than the one-offs, though you may start to notice the same characters in both types of strips!
