Birthday Zine 

I’m making a zone for my husband’s birthday. It’s themed around the story of a little fox who likes to study and collect mushrooms but slightly formatted like a lifestyle magazine. Maybe it seems odd but we live in Japan. Cute is a thing here.

And because I’m like Foxy (I’m great with names, aren’t l?) I’ve also been studying up on mushrooms.

I spent three hours yesterday trying to find cute Japanese fonts. It’s an interesting but overwhelming proposition. I found some free sites but I feel nervous about downloading them. I tried to get to the font creator’s site when I could. But that virus fear doesn’t go away easily.

I’ve got three puzzles done and two illustrations. I “finished” two illustrations today. I’d like to do more with them but I think it’s time to just say enough.

 I like the pencil drawing but it doesn’t really do with th playful tone of the zone.

The Foxy Mushroom Detective would be better with some more depth, shading or color but I only have time for a line drawing.

Well, work in progress at any rate.
