It's Printed!!!

It's just an uncorrected proof, some of the colour needs adjusting and I need to re-letter some speech bubbles... BUT it's all there, on the right paper and with a snazzy dust cover. This is my favourite spread! Thanks to the whole world knows: cats like cardboard boxes.
I think I should try and get an edition printed in LOLspeech - the original script almost was, actually, but we decided to try and offer complete sentences to the human toddlers wherever possible. Not on this spread, though :)

Oh! Such a tease- I want to see more! That looks fantastic from this little glimpse!

Hah, it's still my favourite page, this, I'm sure I've posted it several times over from rough stage to printed... It'll be in the shops in time for next Christmas. - Argh!!!! It's the many novelty elements that make it take so long, even though I did my best to keep them simple. We're still adjusting it here and there... I'm feeling a bit fussy, like on this page I would like the book to be sold with the boxes OPEN, so that you can close them yourself, rather than the other way around, I'll have to find out if that's possible...

I'm ever so tempted to post the whole thing, more or less, but I don't want to spoil the surprise :p
It's frustrating, this, I wish I could do some more quick work between books so I can show it off as soon as it's out!
