Where's the next chapter? Forming as slowly as ice in a spa, thanks largely to the huge demands of my day job. Fortunately my day job has been pretty enjoyable lately and while it doesn't involve Krill, it does have a comic book penguin.
"Captain Congo and the Crocodile King" is the latest book I've illustrated for the Australian children's book publisher Working Title. Not just a book, but a comic book. You know, for kids.
Written by Ruth Starke, this 48 page book features the Captain's first adventure as he is sent by The Agency to track a missing anthropologist, leading to the crocodile infested jungles of the Omo River. Best of all, he's accompanied by Pug, an occasionally sardonic but stalwart sidekick in the form of a King penguin. (Not to be confused with Krill's Emperor Penguin, but we know all about that now after the last post.)
I put the book to bed last night. Checking of proofs and a few revisions and tweaks are doubtless still on my schedule, but at least now the day job won't be intruding on the night work.
Remember kids; never quit your day job.
