Two polished pages

Dear Readers:

As I mentioned last week, The Moon Prince is on a break until June 13th while I go back and polish up the first 50 or 60 pages to match the rest of the book. So you can see what I'm doing, here's a couple of examples as little animations - pages 12 and 19.

Best wishes and thanks for reading!

The Moon Prince Page 211: A Little Secret

Dear Readers:

Today's page marks the exact halfway point of The Moon Prince story -- there were 210 pages before this, and there are 210 pages to go. Before we get to the second half of the story, The Moon Prince is going to take a break for two months, with no new pages until Friday, June 13th. 

This is so I can go back and polish up the first 50 or 60 pages to make their style more consistent with the rest of the book. To show you what I'm doing (and hopefully keep you in the habit of coming here every week!), I'm going to post animated examples each Friday showing how certain pages looked when they were first drawn, and how they look after all the polishing. The first of these, for page 10, is just below today's new page, so scroll down if you're curious!
Thanks as always for reading The Moon Prince!

The Moon Prince Page 209: Reading Minds

Dear Readers:

This week's page of The Moon Prince contains an EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE word - perhaps the worst word in the English language. I thought for a long time about using this word because I am aware that there are children and families following this story. In the end, I decided the word is important to the story because racism is important to the story. 

Please skip this episode if you believe the word is inappropriate for yourself or your children.

Best regards,
