The Caricaturist Returns from Krypton via Atlantis!

Just returned 🙂

A time-travel-space-travel combo can leave you drained! As you might’ve already surmised, my visit to Krypton took place in the past, before the planet had exploded. I didn’t go there by choice, General Zod‘s forces had abducted me and taken me away to caricature the whole council of elders. (Apple-polisher, that General Zod.) I had finished creating all their caricature-portraits just a few days before the cataclysm – and from there I was jettisoned into the future and landed in Argo City. Most of my time there, I was a prisoner who was tortured and had to draw whatever they wanted me to draw.

Superman helped me escape. Mainly because Krypto the Superdog put in a good word for me. I must tell you that Superman might be a great guy otherwise, but he really needs to wash that cape of his.

Unfortunately, before I could land safely back and before my feet could find solid ground, Superman was charmed away by a bevy of Atlantian beauties; meanwhile I was whisked away to Atlantis, where I was once again forced to paint their council of elders.

Last night, I suddenly woke up in my own bed. I have no idea how I reached home, but I have a feeling that the Atlantians decided that I was changing a nation of beautiful people into caricatures of themselves, and so they decided that enough was enough!

And so, ladies and gentlemen! I am back 🙂

      • Charley is great and has been wondering where you’ve been. I assured him you had not totally disappeared and we’d be hearing from you soon. He sends hugs.You’ve been quite busy I can see. I’m in the beginning stages of writing a mystery. I was plodding along and decided I didn’t like where it was going. So, this week I started all over again. I may have to take a break from blogging and everything else and just concentrate on getting a first draft completed.
        Last evening I was part of a panel of 3 authors talking about the “Writing Process” and how it differed from writer to writer. The other 2 authors were from academia and my little book differed from their works. Charley said that I held my own in such auspicious company. It was quite enjoyable and I wasn’t nervous at all.
        Take care and I’ll be checking in regularly now that I know you are back in action. Clare

      • Thank you, Clare and Charley. I’ve been busy but not with work. Work doesn’t tire me…but being busy for other reasons, does. I am glad that life is returning to normal. I must confess that events such as the Paris Attacks shake me up quite a bit. Those panel discussions on the writing process sound really exciting – doesn’t matter if the others were academicians. Academicians are generally a boring lot but once in a while they light-up. I am sure that being in the company of a children’s book author must’ve made them feel happy. And Clare, you’ve been in the military…if that didn’t make you lose your nerve, nothing can 🙂 Keep smiling and give my good wishes and regards to Charley.

      • And Charley is relieved you are back and OK – We were in Paris 2 years ago for his 65th Birthday. It has shaken us, too. I long for a kinder, gentler world like the one I created in A Berkshire Tale.The real one becomes more horrifying every day to me.
