(no subject)

All the files for Shorpacked! Book 1 are being processed by the printer, so it's the first time in a while that I had the book's production out of my hands.

So I started drawing concept art for the next book's cover! ...I may be a workaholic.

"Shortpacked! Pulls the Drama Tag" is definitely the decided title for the second book, and I wanted to have Robin lifting the tag itself up into the sky, dramatically... and so I thought of the first poster for Star Wars. I threw the sketch at the left together using various elements from the original trilogy Star Wars posters, and I'm somewhat satisfied with it, in its own vacuum of individual existence. However, I'm conflicted over whether the idea is too done. Everyone does a Star Wars parody at some point in time or another. If this thing shows up in a bookstore, I don't want any eye-rolling.

On the other hand, it makes me giggle. And there is some exposed Robin cleavage.

We'll see.

(Also, I'm not sure why Faz is vomiting a series of boxed X-Wing toys.)

Speaking of Melonpool and parodies, Steve Troop's submitted a "Snakes on a Plane" spoof video to the MTV Movie Awards. If you like it, you can vote for it, and it can win!
