Author Notes:

And there we go, chapter 1 of 3 is completed!

I've got to admit, this is a page that makes me hate the necessity of a once-a-week update. If you're a little foggy about the past few weeks updates, I'd recommend skipping back a few pages and reading them through again. Might make this page seem slightly less... benign.

I think this is the first page where instead of just tapping into my library of watercolour textures, I painted elements especially to slot into the page (specifically the last panel background, and a lot of the foliage) I'm not sure I'll have time to do it for every page, but I'm so happy with the results.

Next week I'll be off giving an academic paper at a conference at Oxford University like the cloistered academic that I am! There will be an update of course, but I might not be around responding to comments as usual.

Remember you can find me on Facebook:

and on tumblr:

Thanks for reading!

Wow the watercoloring is amazing. But yes, I can also see how such is time consuming.

Have a nice stay in Oxford. :D

Thanks! It is - doesn't help that I don't have a scanner. I keep sneaking pages into my local library.

Hmm, I have my suspicions where this is going and it doesn't look good. There's always a cost. Always. Good luck on your presentation. Do you have a link to the paper?

Not yet, I hope I will soon though! It lends itself pretty well to being online because its quite visual.
And, yes... everything has consequences.

Nice work on the page, Leafa. I keep coming back to see if there's anything new.

(Love watercolours)

Thank you so much, it's really, really gratifying to know that people are checking back!

I'm updating Friday evenings now - seems to be a little better for traffic than my previous time on Sundays.
