Blog - 'It's about time you showed your face around here!'
Carol - 'I was doing you a favour! All I was working on was the graphic novel and I know how much you LOVED hearing all about what page number I was currently working on!'
Blog - 'Oh.' *pauses* 'In that case you are totally forgiven! It really was boring listening to you bang on about what page number you had reached and how many panels you had created.'
Carol - *shrugs* 'Well, I wasn't allowed to tell you anything else cause it's all top secret!'Blog - 'I know. How goes it all anyway? Or should I not ask?' *laughs*
Carol - 'You will be delighted to hear that it is finished' *beams* 'Completely and utterly finished!'
Blog - 'OMG! That's awesome!'
Carol - 'I know! And just cause I can't resist...102 pages in total featuring 640 separate panels!'
Blog - *laughs* 'And now I never have to listen to you say that again' *does happy dance* 'So, when did you finish it?'
Carol - 'A couple of weeks ago but I didn't get a chance to pop over and tell you cause my Mum was visiting'
Blog - 'So what cha been doing? You working on anything interesting?'
Carol - 'I had a go at doing my first ever proper portrait'
Blog - *jaw drops open* 'I thought you didn't draw people'
Carol - 'I don't! But I had a moment of madness and decided that I would give it a go'
Blog - 'Well???' *sighs impatiently* 'Don't keep me waiting! Let me see!'
Blog - 'You drew you!'
Carol - 'Yeah. I figured it was safer to draw me than to try drawing someone else...you know...just in case it turned out hideous and they never spoke to me again'
Blog - *laughs* 'Wise plan! It really looks like you!'
Carol - 'I was pretty pleased with how it turned out. Don't think it's too shabby for a first ever attempt and I learned a lot in the process of doing it.'
Blog - 'You going to do any more?'
Carol - 'Funny you should ask that. My friend Katie challenged me to do one of her in the same style. Jeeze it was stressful! I honestly don't know how people produce portraits for a living!'
Blog - 'So you gave it a go?'
Carol - 'I did. And it had fingers in it and everything!'
Blog - 'Fingers! Did you turn them into sausages?'
Carol - *laughs* 'No. But I did spend quite a lot of time cursing her thumb'
Blog - *laughs* 'Let's see it then...'
Blog - 'Not a sausage in sight.'
Carol - 'I know! Tis a miracle' *laughs*
Blog - 'I like em! I think you should do more!'
Carol - 'Yeah. Quite a few people have said the same. I'm not confident with them...'
Blog - 'That's no reason not to do them you know! And the more you do the more confident you will get'
Carol - *looks at Blog*
Blog - 'I'm right and you know know it!'
Blog - *smug face*
Carol - 'You don't have to look quite so smug about it!'
