Blustery, blizzardy weather will not deter the diligent bloodhound.

My M-W-F schedule keeps getting borked by the demands of moving to a new house, mostly because my brain is so distracted I keep forgetting until the day after a page was supposed to appear. I suppose I should set up alerts on my calendar or something. Hmmm. Clever those mnemonic  devices.

Not everyone shares your concerns, good doctor.

This was supposed to go up yesterday, but the beginning of the fall term disrupted the workflow. Whoops!

I am a bit behind on updating this week due to a big move to my new house. Despite setting up an internet connection on the day of the move, I could not get to setting up my computer until yesterday, when I discovered I could not plug in the computer until I bought a three prong adapter, which I could not buy until this morning because I have had so many things to buy lately. For want of a nail, the war was lost. Well, it’s not that tragic. Tomorrow we will resume our regularly scheduled M-W-F updates. Cheers!

A few stylistic changes you might notice with this story: digital lettering, and more use of brush over pen. Page dimensions changed over time, too, as I sought to fit more action and drawing on to the page. I chose digital lettering mostly because my hand was getting cramped lettering the traditional way. A few years later I would resume lettering by hand for a few years, but then cramping got worse, so these days I am back to lettering on a computer, and drawing in a total digital environment, too, as you can see with the Otherworldly Goods story of Fetch. Drawing on larger pages allowed for a lot more experimentation, too.

It’s a new story line! Search Party starts today, focusing on the farm’s efforts to find Sheldon.

As we can see, Paw Pig searches for his son with the same sense of urgency he had the last time Sheldon went missing.
