[Seacoast in Spring - 2] - First group of blocks done ...

Continued from [Seacoast in Spring - 1]

It's difficult (impossible) to maintain a stream of updates when all I'm doing is carving. The printing stages give people something to look at, but carving is certainly not something that is very interesting to watch!

But things have been moving forward steadily, and maybe it's time to give you a sneak peek at the work done so far (click for enlargement):

Some of these blocks are 'easy' (less detail) and some are pretty busy. To keep the progress of the work balanced, I've been alternating between the two types. I'm now doing the keyblock, which will take a week or so, and then when that's done, will flip these five over and do the other sides, which are very similar to the faces you see here.

So it'll be a few weeks yet before there is any chance of getting to the proofing stage.

In the meantime, lots of other things are getting done. The winter newsletter is now out for translation, the preparation work for the next series is progressing well, and my explorations in Tokyo the other day turned out to be successful.

Eh? Explorations in Tokyo? Ah, perhaps I didn't mention that yet ... You can get an update by checking out this weekend's entry in the 'A Story A Week' series ...

The thread continues in [Seacoast in Spring - 3] ...
