The Mighty Alice

Et voilá- here's the final mechanical for the next Cul de Sac book! "Mechanical" is a technical printing term that I've never gotten around to learning, but I think it means a pretty final version in this case. This'll be the first time that I didn't do the color on a CdS book. It was colored by Kansas City watercolorist Peggy McKeehan, who's done a lot of work for Andrews & McMeel, and I think she did a fine job. I appreciate her deft touch and dab hand.

Did it feel a bit like giving up a bit of yourself to have someone else color it? Can't wait for the new book!

Her name is Peggy McKeehan, and she is here in Kansas City. She has done a lot of watercolor work for us, including some for Lynn Johnston. The book is available 5/8.

Oh man, can't wait for this. I'm glad to see Alice's ego remains healthy.
