So, I guess this isn't going to be back up? 'Cause you guys are really cool, and I'd love to see this continued...

I am considering a relaunch, but don’t really want to take down the art that is already up since, nor re-post it. I honestly don’t know what to do. I don’t want to disband the blog because I do honestly want to pick it back up again some time. Just not sure how to best achieve what I want, and keep up with it and keep it active! Sorry! :(

Will this blog pick back up again? I was just re-reading the Abhorsen trilogy and I miss your art from here :(

I really really want it to pick back up but it isn’t entirely up to me. I am currently at a 40+ hour job and I know other members have the same obstacles or other ones, so I’ve been having a hard time figuring out how to get this project back on track. 

What'd you guys stop for? I love picture this book ;_;

Life just took over. Probably will be back after the hectic holidays! I’m not ready to quit this club just yet!

Reading this week: Chapters 23-24

Notes: I guess you are exempt, Poupon…unless you want to do more than one for 23 or one for 24… ;)

Extended for another week. Letting you guys know ahead of time for once.

Reading this week: Chapters 23-24

From chapter 23… which I didn’t even think to check if that was one of the ones assigned this week. W, whoops
Anyway, the way I’ve been choosing scenes is taking the ones that have lingered most vividly in my mind since the first time I read Sabriel. Which has the nasty side effect of making it look like a trashy book about zombies and kissing. Talk about your misrepresenations! But to a 12 year old me, the things that stuck out most in my mind were the ickiest things.

So… zombies. And kissing. And icky boy part things.

 [once upon a time I had typed something out here. Something about the allegorical and abstracted nature of my color schemes and backgrounds striving to represent tone and thematic concerns rather than naturalistic and situationally accurate schema, but WHOOPS I DELETED THAT. And WHOOPS WHO CARES BUT ME.]

Reading for this week: 

Chapters 21-22

Extended till Tuesday!  Week extension seems to be more beneficial. 

Reading for this week: 

Chapters 21-22

From Chapter XIX

Another week of starting out on something ambitious but ending up on something scribbly. Welp. At least this scene should feel familiar to everyone who has ever owned 1) a cat, 2) a bathtub, and 3)secret feelings.

Week 8 is extended for another week since no one was able to update. 

Or did you guys just not like chapters 19 and 20?
