I’m actually glad to be back at school again, I have my first casual day next Monday where my toys and imagination will come to play.

The following day, I’ll be meeting with Heather and Evi to discuss any changes with the page proofs for Thai-riffic! All the changes are pretty minor (eg. name mix ups). I can’t wait to see the illustrations or as I now call them ‘evillustrations’. We have plenty of spare pages to really add some cool stuff.

I’m a step closer to building my website. I’ve decided to use WordPress and do it myself. It won’t be as flashy as other sites, but it’ll be easy to use and more imporantly east to keep up to date. This blog will be linked to the site, so don’t worry cHEwY gums, I’m not going anywhere 🙂

Finally, I’ve been revisiting my earlier chapters of my next project, CONNERD. I’m back in love with Connor and his friends, the story’s core is still beating strongly. It looks a lot different from it’s original form (back when it was called Winter in Korea) but like Thai-riffic!, it’s evolving into a wacky, fun adventure. Think diary of a nerdy kid and you’re halfway there 🙂

Bring on February as we edge closer to the launch of Thai-riffic!
