I've finished the pencils for 5 pages of Mythical Beasts. Then onto inking and coloring. In the meantime I'm introducing a new strip that will run along with Mythical Beasts and Magical Creatures. While out to lunch with my kids today I had the idea for Aye Aye with My Little Spy. Unlike Mythical Beasts, this strip will be done stream of conscious, which means I'll be making it up as I go along, literally panel to panel. It also means no pencils, no erasers, no rulers, just a pen. It's an artistic exercise on display for you.

Our household can't wait for the next MB&MC pages! So exciting- we've been checking in almost daily just to see how Yeti fares on his trip to America.

On another note: what is that on Mr. Beard's lap- a toy? A creature? An 'alternative' child? Love his non-bearded spindly-mustached face. What a character! Looking forward to more.

Thanks for the nice comments. 5 more MB&MC pages should be up before the end of the month.
You can follow on Facebook
or Tumblr
which could make checking for updates a little easier :)

Mr.Beard is holding his hat in his lap. He may be a pirate, but he's also a gentleman and knows to remove his hat when he enters a building.

On another note: I'm curious what the demographics of your household are and how you found my comics.

Thanks for the info, Jeff- we'll be checking it all out :-)

And ahhh, yes, Mr. Beard's hat. I see... well the cute face on the skull and bones threw me off a bit... lol

Awesome- thanks for the timely info.(apologies- slipped my mind that I had commented here!)

And ahh, yes. His hat! The adorably cute face on the skull threw me off a tad but apparently that was just me- the kids are laughing over my questions of it's nature.

Our household is full of super heroes, aliens, a sprinkle of werewolves, and lots of laughter! And we all adore your comics. Duh.

P.S. Google is a powerful tool. Honor it wisely.
