Lucy in Love

So, I always wanted to try my hand at a web comic, so I did a quick sketch of one that's been stuck inside my brain for awhile now.

So, who is Lucy? Why, she's a girl crazy in love!

Actually, she's just crazy.

Or maybe love has made her a little mental?

Either way, she's in total denial that her boyfriend, Johnny, wants nothing to do with her.

In fact, he's dumped her more than a dozen times and she mistakes it for thoughtful gestures (can we say "blinded by love?")
And I have plans for Lucy. And her boyfriend Johnny. And it might ultimately involve a grave.

Click on Lucy below to see my first attempt at her web comic:

Want to know a SECRET?


What could this mean?


Camp could mean a few things. Like maybe summer is drawing near. Or next summer a 3rd Blogtastic book comes out! Yes, yes that's the one. And Sofia is going to summer camp. Sofia and nature go together like peanut butter and....anchovies. Yep, they don't mix. Much like me. and nature. Hmmm, I wonder where the inspiration will come from. So the title for this fantastic third book (as of now) will be: Secrets From The Sleeping Bag.

What are some of your camping experiences?
