Tann Starr Sketchbook Chronicles: The next Kim Harrison cartoon - Denon

Yesterday, after my soggy jog in the rain, I knew the next cartoon victim for my favorite black uni-ball pen was either going to be Denon or Mr. Dinky (yeah, I was kinda in "D"mode - LOL).

I am reading Dead Witch Walking for the third time and loving every single minute of re-discovering subtle things I missed about The Hollows characters. The cartoons in my head are having a field day with them. I'm tempted to do book reviews but I don't want to spoil all that complicated plotting for the new readers. The main character is a magnet for misadventure and it's really hard to do a decent review without spoilers. ;-)

I can say that the Rachel Morgan series will take you places you never expected to go in the theater of your mind (so you really should read them all in order - LOL).

Who knew a sexy vamp, cynical wise cracking pixie and itchy witch could be so much fun?

It really is an acquired taste. I'm hooked and so are my girlfriends. They are expecting an illustration a day from me and the four of them yell at me when I don't share the visions floating around in my head (yup - we sometimes live vicariously through each other - LOL). Talented friends demand a lot when they know what you are capable of. My girls are upping the ante and holding my fave hardcover hostage so I have to get back to work and finish the new Kim and Ivy portraits so I can recover my book.

At least they didn't take my Korg (which would have started a silly blog war and had me calling them out to dual at Tai Chi class - LOL). ;-)

Note to self: be careful who you give your house keys to. House-sitters can be dangerous (LOL).

Kim has a neat little video on her blog that explains a bit about what Rachel thinks regarding the Hollows. That may be useful to get some of you guys started if you're curious about what the running spoof and goof has been about.

Fans are a funny lot... Fans that blog even quirkier because we frequently play across our social media accounts while chatting about what interests us.

It's time for me to get back to working on my new album, warming my green tea and briefly popping over to go say hello to my Facebook peeps. I have Mafia Wars requests to attend to before I go to the studio and as usual I will be floating over to lurk in the Kim-Stream for a little while to see what's new with one of my favorite authors.

After lunch, I promised my writing mentors I would send them a new short story. They have trashed every one of them so far so I have reasonable cause to believe they are going to tear me a new one when they get a load of the next subject matter (don't ask - not telling - LOL). Their collective acid tongues usually helps to improve my writing because I love irony and witty banter and they are very cheeky geeks. Fun, constructive critics inspire me to write more (there- I said it - LOL).

I love hanging out with people who are waaaaay smarter than I am and don't mind the fact that teaching me how to be an author is one of their favorite bloodsports. ;-)

Oooooo... Tiny! I remember that character (LOL). Candice, I am counting down to August and looking forward to hanging out with my AZ peeps. I am working on a new track and thinking of taking a musical break to go have lunch and maybe sketch something fun to relax. I am having a very strange computer day... ;-)
