When we last checked in… Rafael was finishing the art (which looks beautiful) This week it was my turn. I had to do a pass at all the lettering and do my last pass at rewriting before turning it into First Second. The catch? I have a sick son at home today (virus + strep throat = poor guy). And so as he napped (with a bucket for vomit nearby and chicken and rice soup cooking in the kitchen) I finished my last pass at the words of CLAUDETTE BOOK 2 with the printed out pages on top of my boy, the computer on my lap, and poised to grab the vomit bucket at any stirring. *
Okay, the words are done. The picture are done. And now it’s time for the world’s greatest colorist to take his turn. John Novak. It’s your turn.
* Funny enough, there was no vomit. The kid just looked like he was going to. He looks better now.
