Hey guys,

The anthology those Una pages appear in is sitting in boxes in my house. Want a copy? Mosey on over to Paypal and send $6 US plus $3 shipping to [email protected] (U.S. & Canada, I'll have to figure out what overseas shipping costs) And I'll send you one. I'll even draw something in the front.

Hey guys! I'm trying to figure out what to do with Una. She seems to be one of my most popular characters, so I'm looking for the right story to tell with her. I had a friend who's a teen fantsy novelist suggest that I adapt the characte for a young adult audience. Obviously, a nursing mother in her early twenties isn't really going to play to teens but, if I fastforward a few years to Annora as a young adult, I suddenly have a story to tell. And I don't have to change Una's history either.

So here are some ideas about what a thirty-something Una would look like, and Annora as a young teenager.

I'd love to hear what you all think.

I think the nursing barbarian mother in her twenties is the whole charm of Una!

Sigh. You're probably right. I just don't know what to do with her.

Love the drawings, excellent stuff. It's nice to see a unique take on a typical story.

Steve - great stuff, as always. How many hours a day do you work on Much and Una? Is this your job, or do you have another?

At the time being, I don't have any other work. Animation business in Vancouver has been dry lately. I have some work coming up in June though.

Well, I'm glad you have paying work coming up, and I'm relieved to know that you're basically doing this full time. I couldn't see how you could get so much done otherwise, makes me feel like a slug!

Keep it up. Great stuff!

I don't know; I think that seeing her age and the changing dynamic in her relationships with her children could be very interesting. How would a teenager feel about living with a wildly reputed barbarian mother? And how does one handle uppity, know-it-all teenagers without violence when one normally handles problems with hack-and-slash?

The barbarian with toddlers in tow is hilarious (and I look forward to more), but I bet that the concept could be expanded.
