At one point during "The Alternet" project, I ran out of ideas. It's amazing how hard it is to come up with inspiration when your life is busy. (You may have noticed the lack of comics over the past two weeks.) My solution for the card catalog project was to start illustrating an old picture book story I had written years ago and set aside. Here are the first seven pages of that story. I hope you like it. As far as the project goes, today I finished my 285th card. Only fifteen to go!
