For those of you who don’t know, Lee Cherolis plays bass for The Shake Ups in Ponyville, a band dedicated to writing, recording, and performing original songs inspired by My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic! Their new album is set to drop in December. I play guest guitar on a few of the tracks and will be playing live with them at their CD Release show on December 12th. If you are in the Indianapolis area, please join in on the fun. www.theshakeups.net
For Halloween this year, Nina was Supergirl. Elaine continues to practice her flute.
I’ve been reading Cleopatra in Space to Nina, and she is really enjoying it. This is a great all ages comic by Mike Maihack. The best way to describe Cleopatra in Space…. It is about Cleopatra in Space.
Another good comic I recently read to Nina is Smile by Raina Telgemeier. It is an award winning graphic memoir based on her childhood. I highly recommend this one, especially anyone with teeth.
And finally something for the adults. One of the best books I’ve read in the last year is Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt. That one I did not read to any children, but still good!
Thanks for reading!
Lee’s faithful veteran 4-year old laptop started to bite the dust last week right before we hit the road to Topatocon. As soon as we got back we took it in and now have a diagnosis. It needs a new logic board but they are replacing it for free because magic. Files were backed up so we’ve only lost time and nothing else. WE ARE THRILLED. This will mean a slight delay while the laptop is repaired.
UPDATE: Laptop is back and working like a dream! Regular page updates will resume hopefully on Monday October 12th and the Chapter should wrap up around November 2nd.
Thank you so much for your patience! Rest assured we are using this time to work ahead at least in the sketch-stage on many of the things coming up soon. Chapter 5 final pages, Book 3 cover art, Chapter 6 beginning pages…
We still plan to have a short break between Chapters 5 and 6 while posting some more guest from honestly, some of the best friends a webcomic artist could have. So keep coming back and be on the look out for more announcements here and on our Twitter and Facebook feeds about that!
Chapter 5 is nearly ready to wrap up! We estimate the final page to post on Monday October 19th!
We’ve got a lot of great stuff planned for October. Starting Wednesday Oct 21st and running for 2 weeks, we’ll be posting some really cool Little Guardians pinup art and guest art created for us by some incredible artists we’re lucky to know! There are even some names you’ve seen around here before! Here’s a close up preview of one of the pinups we’re going to run!
During the guest art break, I’ll be finalizing Book 3′s cover as well as laying out the book itself.
So when does Chapter 6 start updating? We’re aiming for November 2nd! I can’t wait!
Thank you all for reading!
What’s happening in Little Guardians land…
We just got back from Wizard World Philadelphia where much fun was had!
We just recorded a podcast with the good folks from the Webcomic Alliance to recap our adventures in Philly. We’ll let you know when that episode goes live.
Our Patrons will be joining us tomorrow (May 16th) for a Patron-only live stream party to celebrate Little Guardians hiring a colorist (thanks to our Patrons).
Everything’s coming up Millhouse!
