Another splash page full of bears and background.  These pages make this comic what I want it to be.  They also make my hand hurt and take a lot of time, and that is one reason I haven’t finished the page after this one yet.  Hopefully I can get it done in time for Kailey to color it and stay on schedule.

The other, more prominent reason I have been so busy (as I have mentioned before) is this…
