Reptangle logo
I didn't get a page done for today, so here's some really old Reptangle art. I spent a bunch of time working out this elaborate logo thing for a website and then junked it because I had read that it is really important to have the title of your book be very legible.
 This ain't that. I was new to doing art on a computer at the time, that's how old this is. I was very proud of myself.

I am really bad at what I have been doing these past three weeks: dealing with programs, making PDF files,  and other scary, aggravating stuff. I'm pulling my hair out over glitchy websites! I have pretty much failed at everything so far, but I am still proud of myself for trying. Just like in second grade, I should get  trophy for showing the effort.
 I probably won't be posting a new page of Rueday this Monday. This weekend I will need to concentrate on getting "the Veligent " ready to print.
 The book part is all done, but now the hard part; I need to write a nice, punchy synopsis ( is that the right word?)  of the story, or SOMETHING enticing  to put on the back cover. Gad, I don't know how to summarize this story.  Maybe I'll just have some random facts, like Snapple caps.

Sketchbook Cover for 'The Veligent ' kickstarter
I'm chipping away at the list of tasks  that need to be finished in order to get this campaign going. I Just ordered a proof of this small sketch book to use as a contribution  "reward".  Hope it isn't another printing disaster.

A very old ( like 20 years) pen and  ink drawing of a possible background for a Reptangle page. Haven't used it for anything yet, but I'll probably include it in the sketch book.

 I didn't even try to get a new page of Rueday done this weekend!
 I knew I'd need to spend some serious time trying to get a printer lined up to Print "the Veligent" for the future kickstarter ... but this is proving to be far more trouble than I expected! And I expected trouble . But this is more.
 Even what should be really simple has been trouble.
 Have any of you used a print on demand company, like Lulu, or Book baby, to print a book? I just want  ONE copy to use as a proof, to check for lettering size and page position and typos. I won't go into detail, but every single step of what should be easy peazy has been a MAJOR hassle, confusing instructions, impossibly-hard-to-see templates, error messages ...exhausting, and horribly frustrating. This just to get one proof copy!!
 So anyway, my daffodils are blooming! Happy first day of spring!

Sketchbook page nettuce and chilla
I may have a small sketchbook printed as a  "reward " for my upcoming kickstarter campaign for "the Veligent"  I managed to find a few presentable drawings to include, of backgrounds and concept art.
 This is an example of one image.

Hi !! Was trying to see an expanded version of the adult poads complete with their glass eyes but on DA it's the same one I have.
Thank you for your creative genius and sharing The Veligent and Rue Day with us!!
I feel Kickstarter is so going to be worth it for you, so sorry about the tech/computer issues....
But methodically you are doing ALL the right things, and you are getting closer and closer to Kickstarter beginning!!!
I cannot wait to get a couple of copies of The Veligent and hopefully more than 1 poad too, as well as your sketchbook and whatever other " goodies " will be offered!!!!
Hugs Of Encouragement !!!
