But no! I have a confession to make. There's something I didn't tell you.
The Alec's Year Book stories are made up of daily entries in a series of sketchbooks that I've been keeping since Alec was born. For the first couple of years I kept them in green sketchbooks like this one. But then those sketchbooks were discontinued (don't you hate it when that happens!?) and I had to find something new (see below). So there was a period of a few months in which I didn't have any steady place to keep track of my comics. And somewhere in there... some comics were LOST.
This afternoon I was getting some stuff ready to take to the Expo and I opened up an old portfolio. You've already guessed what was inside.. yes. The lost sketchbook. Did I mention I'd been looking for this, for almost four months??? Did I mention I just picked up the book from the printers', about two hours before this??? There's a rule about this kind of thing, right?
Well, it's too late to print them now, but I'm going to put them all up here - for posterity!
Thanks to everyone who's been so supportive of my Alec's Year Book campaign (and at the time of writing, there's still ONE DAY in which to do so!) - not just the awesome donors but all sorts of others such as my colleagues on the Ramsay community newsletter editing team, who right this minute are proofing our monthly intake of content so that I'll have free time to get ready for the Expo (of course, here I am frittering away that valuable time on this blog...) - thanks everyone! I couldn't do it without you!
