This page brought to you by ibuprofen, acetaminophen, Icy Hot, and an ice pack. In other words, this week has been a battle with back pain. BUT! That is not all. Asthma kicked in due to humidity and allergies. I’ll forego details, but it was gross.
Anyhowz, here be a new page. Thanks again for your patience. As you can see, more wolves. But now the odds are more evened out, perhaps more in our protagonists’ favor, as they have weapons now. As I drew this, my 8-year-old son wondered that I would put such dangerous implements in the hands of children. He worried that Chloe would roast herself with that flaming branch. Once again, whatever I as a creative adult can conjure up will not match the violence a kid can imagine.
Recently learned that wolves are on the rise in Oregon, turning up in places too close for human comfort. Or maybe it’s the other way around — we keep invading their habitats with shopping malls and ranches. Either way, I don’t recommend fighting them with swords.
