The next project — grOw/stOry#18 titled "OutgrOwing Denise" — is well underway. The text has been completed and 17 of 20 illustrations have been pencil drawn, and I expect the complete the last 3 today or tomorrow. This release is a brand new stOry from Tristan Langley (aka "Longbow9"), the author of "Succubus". If Mr. B ("Voluntary Response") can be considered the Steven Spielburg of BE stories, then "Tristan Langley" is the Michael Bay of them. Fast-paced and filled with numerous grOwing beauties expanding all sorts of ways, this latest endeavor from the author of the wildly popular "Medicine Show" serial story in LPSQ.org forum is an electrically-charged romp with an explosive ending.
(For those concerned, YES, after this release, I will be embarking on the next grOw/cOmic, which will be a 6-issue series.)
I am sorry, but I can't show any pencil previews yet, as my computer is "in the shop." I am hoping to get it back within the next few days, fixed, ready to go, and with minimal weight loss to my wallet. (Don't worry — I have quadruple back-up, so no files, projects, or scans were lost.) If my computer had to develop trouble, this was the perfect time to do so, as most of my work is using pencil and paper right now. (Some work had to be done digitally, such as the backgrounds and looking up reference material, but I am using my wife's [much slowerrrr] computer to do so in the meanwhile.)
Speaking of the above, have YOU backed-up your work recently??? Hard drive failure is not a matter of IF, but a matter of WHEN. Back-up drives are relatively inexpensive now-a-days, and can even be configured to back-up automatically. As for me, I have an application that automatically copies any updated file to TWO hard drives (RAID-0 set-up of 2 hard drives in a single case) each night at 2am. Also, I have a full, cloned copy of my OS on another hard drive for instant access to my OS and apps (which I am using right now); and, I have Carbonite online back-up for my files (to protect against weather damage, fire, or theft of my computer).
Remember, as posted at my website FAQ page, ALL orders made before June 6, 2012 are no longer downloadable. My old Host suddenly close-up shop and shut down his servers the day before, instantly cutting off any access. All his customers (myself included) lost their ecommerce databases without any chance of getting them back — ever. So... make those back-ups of your purchases!
