YAY! Finally finished this thing. Whew! Hope you liked it, MrMeval, and everyone else too. That’s it for this year’s poetry contest – mondo thanks to everyone who entered, winners and other participants alike, for all the wonderful entries!

So, what’s next? Well, I’m apparently trying desperately to kick and punch my way through what I can only describe as “incipient burnout.” Therefore, I’m going to scale back a little bit and stick to illustrations for a while. Then again, “scaling back” is a relative concept here – there will be shallower output, but more frequent. Starting next Monday, there will be a new update every single day, weekends included, for almost two weeks! Enjoy the countdown.
