Unlike all the mice in our past experience, this one in particular was pretty docile and friendly. Yuko told me over the phone that the mouse was "60% head" and she speculated that it was probably a baby.
When we lived at Spacklehaus, there was a definite mouse problem. We tried a lot of traps, including glue traps which turned out to be pretty cruel. In the end we chased the mice down with colanders and released them into the wild - it started as a chore and became a kind of challenge. Conrad and I got pretty good at it.
I thought of Mouse Trap and got a little nostalgic, but then I remembered that it was the worst game ever.
I've got a question for you! Prior to inking a comic, Yuko typically does an ink test - to get the ink flowing on the brush properly. She usually does them on the corner or margin of some page that is 80% full already, but guys ... they look really nice. We're wondering, if she were to start doing these ink tests on artist trading cards (2.5" x 3.5" on bristol), would you guys and gals be interested in purchasing them? Each would be one-of-a-kind, and the content would range from our own characters (present and future projects) to renditions of other works (she just inked a picture of Lockheed from the X-Men). Let us know what you think!
We're still away from home for the holidays. I'm writing this from Yuko's parents' basement while Yuko inks -- she is waving hello. Hope your holiday was nice! Ours was full of good times and junk food. See you Thursday!
