My head, it is so full... things burst out constantly


I can't seem to get away from my ideas, so I have decided to just give in. The crazier I fear they may be, the more exciting they are. So, here are the next few projects (don't worry, A Child's Guide to Teasing Bees is progressing):

Ἴκαρος, a webcomic in twelve parts, without text, composed of animated gifs of handmade clocks, telling the story of Icarus. It will be appearing once a month on Sinister Bedfellows, starting in August, on the 3rd anniversary of SinBed. Imagine if Joseph Cornell made clocks, instead of scrapbooking ;) The clocks will probably be available for purchase when it is all done.
Grimsjulmar A single illustration paired with a poetic recreation of the sacrifice of Odin on the World Tree. I'm revising my poem now and I believe uminthecoil will illustrate it for me.
Hrothgar, a retelling of Beowulf from the king's POV.

There are several longer projects waiting until the day my schedule opens up, including two novels: Q, the story of the Mexican conquest of Spain, I, Hugo, the biography of Hugh de Morville (a composite of several knights of that name from 12th cent. Scotland), and two long-term webcomics, BearCats of Mandhu, the plot is coming together in my head, I need to get it out, The Adventures of Maintenance Man, I need to find the right illustrator.

Oh, and I am still working on the Daily Doggerel, but I have decided that a poem a day, every day, is too ambitious when I'm working 50 - 60 hours a week.
