It’s Summer Again

Neatstep parking comic - the bookworm

I’m not a bookworm, but recently I was reading a very funny book by Bill Bryson called, “I’m A Stranger Here Myself”. In the introduction, he writes “The thing about a weekly column, I discovered, is that it comes up weekly”. When I read that sentence, I knew immediately that I was going to enjoy the book. It’s a pity I don’t have this guy writing gags for Neatstep.

A lot has happened in the last quarter, during which time I’ve been very busy updating my comic strips with all the new characters. I’m pretty pleased with the results and with the increasing readership at ComicsSherpa. I’m not a great believer in technology, but not wanting to be outdone by all the famous celebrities, I have signed-up Neatstep for a Twitter account. I will be launching this service shortly with a couple of specially written comics on the subject of “social networking”.….

I spent the last quarter experimenting, not only with the character drawings, but also with producing some unique greetings cards for various special occasions. I also got sidetracked into creating an animated Neatstep sequence, which I will use on my website in future whenever I want to take a break.

With all those diversions out of the way, I can now concentrate on moving Neatstep up to the next level – whatever that may be. Meanwhile, summer has finally arrived, so I will be out and about downtown in search of likely situations for Neatstep to deal with!
