If I don't say so myself...

WHO WILL? Patting myself on the back time. I've been scanning pages for the third Magic Trixie book- Magic trixie and the Dragon...and--I have to say, I think it's the best one yet. Don't mean to toot me own horn here, but, it is making me smile big time.
Making my arm scream 24/7...but the rest of me is really proud.
You like?How about this one?Scanning and saving in several sizes and formats is a pain in the butt...and I suppose that is why interns have been invented, but, how can they know where I want to adjust the levels and stuff!
Wait til you see all the dragons and the wizards and Wyatt! And Mc Gumm's Weirdtastic Wagons... And the best part is everything has a back story! My brain is bursting with stuff that will not even be in this volume. But I know the what and where and why of it. I wish my skull had a USB port so I could upload the images directly. ( Which I am sure someone somewhere in a secret government lab is actually working on...or in a comicbook secret government lab...along with the contact lens camera or video recording glasses)
And- Magic Trixie has a blog, too...she's working on it in her spare time.

Oh my gosh! I love it! I can't wait to see more.

Very nice, very colorful! Looking forward to seeing it completed.

The middle-age witch lady at the bottom of the first scan- that's a different style, or at least not one I'm used to seeing from you. Not a bad thing at all, just an observation!

And pray tell, does Trixie's blog have a URL?

I'll post the url this weekend. Trixie's still getting her images in order.

Followed the link to your blog from the Beat. I think these pages are beautiful! We need more good comics for the youngsters. If I were a little girl, I'd definitely buy the book based on these pages alone.
