I'm Alive

Sorry I haven't been as attentive as I'd like. It's just a combination of having regular boring ol' work to keep me busy and not much happening with the book at the moment. We're still doing final edits and putting together some catalog pages I'm really looking forward to showing off when I can. They're cool! I'm also busy building a dozen new ghosts that I hope will be swirling through my trees on Halloween.

My wife Karen noticed that Amazon.com has gotten a copy of WHTTWOT's cover, seen in the little ad to the right. This isn't quite the final-draft cover but it's close. And somebody already bought a copy! Just another teeny milestone on the journey....

In an effort to make up for my neglect, let me brighten your day with a link to "Upside-Down Dogs," the perfect counterpart to the classic "Stuff On My Cat." This is why the Internet was born.

Not much to tell, Mike. Redwood trees, styrofoam balls, tulle netting, fluorescent paint, black lights, motors, pulleys, dowels, high-test fishing line . . . the usual.

Watch the skies . . . watch the skies!

Can we expect video on November 1st?

I've tried to video my Halloween stuff before but the lighting is terrible. Plus, cameras respond to low light much differently than eyes do, so it never looks right. So probably not.

Any project with fluorescent paint and black light can't be all bad...


The upside-down-dog pictures made me think, wow, I bet some dogs will look funny in zero g
