Summer

Just realized that I never posted the finished version of this, so here it is!

I'm spending a lot of time on the graphic novel right now, which is why I'm not posting as much. I have a self imposed summer deadline for finishing all the rough layouts.

We also closed on our new house yesterday. Not only did we get a cool first home, but we also snagged a free backyard trampoline. Yay! Best house ever! Now if only I could snap my fingers and be magically all moved in...

This looks gorgeous! A different color scheme than I was expecting, but way better!

So awesome!
I am having a a hard time deciding which is cooler... the skull shorts, or the fantastic water splash.

And congrats on the house.
Moving is exciting, but a huge pain in the bum.

I hate moving... not just moving in general, but from house to house. Good luck with that. A free trampoline makes it worth all the trouble, though, doesn't it?

This summer image is great... makes me wish it was warmer than 40 degrees outside right now. Excellent, as always, Sarah.

Nice work Sarah. I love your summer piece, not to mention your blog is really cool. I love looking at your work on drawergeeks. Really great stuff!! Didn't you work on the Adam Sandler Movie "8 Crazy N ights"?? I think we worked together?? What a small world. I was in 2d layout design.
Really nice work.

Thanks everyone! :) Sorry again for being such a lousy poster. I have to fix that. I really appreciate the comments.

Alana, you guys are so very welcome any time. We should get a table together at one of the cons here sometime!

And Philip, I did work on Eight Crazy Nights, although I worked up at Yowza in Toronto :)
