Dear Paranoid People Who Check Behind Shower Curtains For Murderers. If You Find One, What’s Your Plan?


Work: I have finished the animation and hopefully I can get it to run on the flat screen without too much to deal with. Seems as though there is a difference between systems sometimes. But I rendered it to Quicktime and it plays on one of their laptops. I’ll post it to the Internet in May after the show. In the meantime I am trying to wrap my head around InDesign to get this into a page layout to present to publishers.

And so the story continues…

Where we left off: Jason is condemned to death. Ash has decided that if a crime is committed against a superior, then capital punishment is in order. This is not written in our bi-laws but Ash is firm on this one. Personally I am not for this at all and insisted on dropping the charges. I’ve known Jason for a very long time and always trusted him. There were times I could not function without him and he was always there for me. So needless to say I am very surprised that he screwed up the business and let me down. I can’t let Ash kill him. I’ve decided to try and smuggle him out of here, but that’s easier said than done.

Evolution is a funny thing. Umons multiply like crazy. So much so that until the Petropolis is built, there is a terrible shortage of space. We are desperately trying to fund this endeavor. Most of the money we are making in tourism is going towards building one large enough. This means that maintaining the park is at an all time low. Unfortunately Karpland is becoming a decrepit Disneyland or Coney Island.  This is not good. People expect quality and all we have right now is quantity. But the umons-elders are planning to branch out and form colonies in other parts of the world. Since umons are more resilient they can endure just about anything. There is talk about buying and settling in areas that have been abandoned by their governments.

It’s like my mother always said, “you make plans and god laughs.”

Stay tuned…
