I dunno....Scotty's been keeping Sully on a pretty short lead as of late -- he's been working pretty hard on Commander Kitty! Maybe Gene needs to give him a nudge -- he could use a little fun I think, to keep the creative juices flowing!

Well, I'd love nothing better than to do so...
personally I could read of his and Minkle's adventures
from now on! But... the mighty Mr. Arsenault's clealy buzzed right now about the
Commander Kitty comic, and I would always...
always!... rather see the work that an
artist loves to create, just as much as I love
to work on my own comic. To nudge him about
the dearth of Sully & Minkle adventures (much
as I'd love to see them) would be unfair and
divisive. Besides, just the fact that the
Great Scotty Art Drought is over is cause for
much rejoicing, as far as I'm concerned!
(Remember this time last year? The occasional
sparse little pic now and again on Yerf and
that was IT?? Aaargh! If you get the chance,
ask Scotty about how I tried to steal his

a regularly appearing project again, I don't
wanna divert him! :smile:

You are right! There is much to rejoice about! Release the pigeons!

Where did Reeba disappear to? She ditch me already? Sheesh! There's been a lot of that going on lately! "Hey guys! Let's tell the goofy kangaroo guy with the lame jokes nobody understands we're going down to the pub to hang out, and then we'll go to some other pub and leave him there by himself! Bwah ha ha!"

Hey! Did I tell you about the time I was trying to crank-start my Land Rover? Oh never mind -- you probably read that over on Scotty's forum.

Relax, my Furling. I'm here. At least I've figured out that I'm not having a duel with you, sweetie 'Roo!

Me and another Heeba? Yebbo tried to do that, and look what happened!

The Scottydrought was very depressing indeed. Whenever the Master takes the whim to create, we support it without question. Any of his work is equally enjoyable, no matter what it is.

Besides, it's quality, not quantity we're concerned with, right? I feel very lucky that Scotty is imparting the first ten pages of the Nishnabotna saga. Go check it out, Gene-furs!

Aww ... these Gene-denizens are very sweet. I feel very welcome. ::Sparkle:: Anybody wanna try Tek's glue brownies? They're delicious!

That's a relief! I'm still trying to come up with something to top Hadrian's ShoeHorn!

Why, that's almost as beautiful as a poem I once wrote concerning an inaccessible Lion Bar in Betzdorf, Luxembourg! Thanks! You are quite the poet!

Oh yes, definitely! Ah, but when the mighty
Mr. A is buzzed over a project, you can tell
it's gonna be extra-good! :smile:

Umm... I'll try one, on one condition... the

take on any new and ominous meaning concerning
these brownies, would it?

No to worry! It's organic glue! I salvaged it from the remains of the Nature Niche after Minkle blew it up!

Scotty, dearest! Please tell us how Gene tried to steal your AC Sketchbook! Please?!

I do know you gave Gene a buncha stuff, though! What a lucky fuzzball!

*chuckle* I really wish he would, kinda... it
was one of the highlights of AnthroCon for
me! If you think Scotty's art is amazariffic
in it's final form, you oughta see the mind-
bapping intricacies which preclude those last
versions! Unbelievably precise and exausive
character constuction, and scores of test
poses and studies with more skill in them
than some other artists finished drawings!
It wasn't so much that I was trying to steal
his sketchbook, it was that my hands wouldn't
let go of it! ^_^

The mighty Mr. A *did* of course bestow upon
me many treasures for my own keeping, but
with the fever still hot upon my brow, I yet
could not give up my attempted sketchbook
swipe. He said I was silly. I quite agreed.
And made another grab for it. (Too fast for
me! Aaargh!) <=)

Here's a little of the great stuff Scotty
did for me!

Wow! What a talent! I can see why it would have wanted to follow you home!

Tell ya what -- he still doesn't know what I look like. If the two of you are ever at a conference and someone points at the sky and yells "I've never seen a fish that huge!", grab the sketch book while he's distracted, and meet me out back by the rubbish bins. I'll have some clever means of escape waiting. :wink: (Keenspace needs to make their winkies look more mischevious)

Oh, to have abilities like that! If you tried stealing my sketch book, all you'd find are a load of perfectly blank pages that you could fill in on you own, or maybe something that looks like this. I'm afraid that's about the extent of my drawing abilities when I'm not actually looking at what I'm drawing -- a squiggle in the upper-right to subdue the left side of my brain, followed by clusters of almost-straight lines, for an avatar inspired by a stylized reindeer from a 1980's Christmastime newspaper advert.

Of course, my real problem is all those blank pages in my sketch book! There's nothing on them! I had to get into the habit of travelling light some time ago, so practice materials quickly became an expendable burden.

I think the best practice I got drawing was during a two-month stay in an incredibly uninteresting part of Kazakhstan where I noting to do but sit around and maintain telephone communications to the outside world. My personal belongings had been sent ahead by cargo jet, so I didn't have to carry anything with me. Even then , I stuck pretty much to just learning how to use the various drawing tools by drawing the stuff right in front of me, and never got to the point where I could draw what was inside my head.

So that's me in a nutshell, and why I like to compensate for my lack of talent by recognizing the talent of others! And oh, by the way Gene, in case I have left you out in my enthusiasm for Scotty's work, pass my regards on to Mr. Temple, and tell him he's doing a cracking job! Your's is obviously an epic story, much like my own, and gives my own creator hope that perhaps, maybe as a retirement project in the far off future if not sooner, that maybe my story isn't too big to be told some day!

Oh my, look at the time! It's almost noon, and the sun is shining and the tourists have got to be thick as flies down at the river! Maybe I should walk on down, have a look, take some photos, then settle down to some wiring system improvements on the '75 Land Rover and get in some gardening work before the rain returns!

Cheers!

Naaah, he's long since hip to that one. What
we gotta do is embark on a project of careful
and exhaustive research, to prepare a book
that, externally, looks exactly like Scotty's
on the outside... then swap the two when he
least suspects it! And then scamper off with
our prize, chuckling manaically, until we
open it up and discover that there's only one
drawing in it: Sully and Minkle staring at us
and muttering "No..." And about that time we
realize that discussing secret plans on a
public forum, particularly one that the guy
we wanna sneak the objective away from posts
on,
isn't too bright. <=)

All sketchbook pages start blank! Your not

talent but lack of time.

No story is too big to be told! Mine is one
that I've longed to tell for years, but I've
not had the skill to do so! I'm very glad
that you and all my other readers are getting
as much enjoyment out of reading it as I am
in telling it.
