Hey guys, the next couple weeks are going to be mostly guest strips and updates from the upcoming print volume, 'cause I'll be busy with a few things. But they are interesting things so I thought I'd update you in that regard!

(Left: The design for my 2012 Con banner, which just came in the mail a few days ago!)

So as I've mentioned, this bite is the last page of Volume 2, which will collect Tracks 6-10. Now that all the basic pages are there, it's time for the prep work. This includes:
*Prepping all the pages, including formatting, color corrections and lots of text format corrections for the earlier pages
*Putting together the bonus material, mostly Raccoon-involved as per the character poll results
*Designing and drawing the cover!
*Making some 'catch-up' material for the front, with summaries of the plot and cast.

Besides book prep, Con season is also starting in two weeks! So I've got some buttons and prints still to prepare and other such products. I'm really excited for ECCC and hope to see some of ya there!

Production is also wrapping up on Amulet Volume 5, which I've been doing Flatting work for. So there'll be a few days taken up with final crunch time on that!

Finally, I've got some Sorcery 101 Redo colors to catch up on!

So while that's all going on, I've got some great guest comics lined up and I'll be sharing some of this content as I complete work on it.

I'll also be planning out the next few chapters of KB, 'cause the end of this chapter is kinda the end of the first arc. The next arc has a lot of exciting stuff, and a big new group of villains! I look forward to sharing it with you guys : )
