Eldritch: Lessons 003

Oh my stars, I made it… phew!  The Tron soundtrack helped a lot in getting this done.  Good beat to work to, you know?  Still lots of art problems, as always, but that’s how it goes.

Oh Todd.  Everything you say is just… *facepalm*  

Aside from that though… gosh, not a whole lot to say.  Nothing super interesting mythology-wise going on here, though I suppose I could ramble on about The Hero With a Thousand Faces and answering the call to duty and such.  Buuut, you all have heard me ramble about that book before.

I guess all that’s left to say is, well, I hope you folks have/are enjoying your winter holidays, see you all again next year!

Eldritch: Lessons 002

Yeah, I know there’s a lot of wonkyness going on here… and the same will probably happen next week if I make it.  But, I didn’t want to miss an update if I could avoid it. 

Anyway… well, there’s not a whole lot going on, save for finding out Todd has a wolf form and no human form.  Now, I know Todd says there are wolves who can become human, but not him.  Unfortunately, he’s not Seamus and doesn’t spell everything out… But, well, when we think of shapeshifters, we usually think of a human becoming an animal or something else. Surely, such a trait would have, like venom, evolved separately multiple times in the eldritch animal kingdom.  And, naturally, there are a plethora of animal shapeshifters in myth (especially in Native American stories and such but I won’t bore you guys with that ramble again)

But, we’re slowly getting the ball rolling.

However, the important thing I really wish to say here is: Happy Holidays, folks.  To those of you who celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas.  To those who observe the equinox, Happy Solstice.  To those who celebrate it, Happy (C)Hanukkah.  To those of the Pagan persuasion, Blessed Yule.    I hope that those who celebrate Kwanzaa have a fantastic one.  To those whom it concerns, have a great Pancha Ganapati, or perhaps, Night of the Radishes, and to the folks who celebrate any of the many holidays I’ve missed, I wish you the best.  

And of course Happy Life Day, Starlight Celebration, and Hogswatch.

Eldritch: Lessons 001

Tehee, Blog followers get to see a little early this week XD

God guys, so busy.  I don’t even know how the heck I’m going to get next week’s done.  That’s the trouble with having to have a day job.  It interferes with my night job.  Average joe by day, folklore-and-science-loving-artist by night!

So, here we are with the first page of this chapter. First of all, sorry, I cant draw a stick of licorice to save my soul.  But that aside, yeah Faith’s still trying to wrap her brain around all of this stuff.  She’s doing better at least, hm?  And that silly black cat’s still pestering her.  Who says cats and dogs can’t get along?

Well guys, I’d love to stay and chat, but I need to get going on next week’s update, if I want to have any hope of finishing it on time, what with the holidays and such.

Eldritch: Lessons Cover

Wohoo, new chapter!  I suspect the cover may bring up a question or two.  Don’t worry, it’ll be explained soon.

So… Well, guys, I guess I’ll start out with something I thought was nifty… as it turns out, a werewolf themed site (That I should have found earlier… obviously, I need to spend mote time browsing) recommended my comic; I’m all kinds of flattered by that!  So, While I’ve yet to make the time I should to look at the site (Bad Nash!), here’s a link to the kind article, and since it’s safe to say that most of the folks here like werewolves, maybe you’ll find something of your interest there too: Werewolf.com

Now, however, the important thing: I have a favor to ask.  Winter is upon us, and we all know that the economy is bunk.  Life is hard for us all, and not everyone has enough to get by.  So, if you enjoyed the previous chapter, <I>Layline</I> please, consider donating to your local food bank, or charitable function of your choice.  I don’t know about where you guys live, but around here, there are several places with donation boxes where you can drop off canned goods for those in need.  Spread joy, you know, guys?
