Four to go…

10 Mar

Only four more pages to revise and pimp and we’re …almost done. After this a complete new cover needs to be drawn. But it’s about time to ask for a more recent price at the print shop. Since our last enquiry the idea of a dictatorfree country caught fire in oil selling regions. About time. Unfortunately this made it easier for oil companies and traders to rip us all off and so the oil price has risen about 45% since we asked for a price.

We are already pondering on how to save some dough once the book will be finally here. Maybe the idea of free Black Forest Cake for everyone buying a copy is off…

The wonders of photo shop

2 Mar

What is happening? Nothing spectacular, really. We just finished proof reading most of Jibonka, found a lot of missing or missplaced colons and letters and hope not to detect the next batch when we have the printed book in hands.

Of course, with the oil price climbing faster than green peace activists up a chimney, printing and shipping will get more expensive. And so even Gaddafi and other stubborn dictators in the arab world have a very distinct influence on the adventure of gettig published.

Meanwhile here’s a little picture, Jörg assembled for fun. The nice gentleman to the left is Eddy Oily, who in Jibonka is the idea for a manager. Yes, the idea. Accordingly he lives in Adewani Tower – where ideas live. There, he is just a rough black and white sketch, here Jörg graced him with a little colour. For the moment, the band is called “Seband”, but it might also be called “Doughfinger”. But then Utterleigh, our main character, would have to be i the picture, too.

 

 

 

 

I would like to add a piece of music, but I have not yet figured out how to do it. Soon…
