Volume I, the restored, definitive edition of A DISTANT SOIL is now at the printer! Huzzah! Working on issue 41 of the comic! Huzzah! Working on Volume II of the graphic novel restoration! Huzzah!
Restoration going way over budget, and new estimate is for $25,000. Ow.
I’d hoped to cut back on selling art because packing and shipping eats up a lot of time…but $25,000 is a lot of money. And I still have a ways to go.
So, great! More art for sale!
