Whoops! I goofed! Molly's ship is docked at Wahika Moi harbor with the stern facing the city. But the recent panels I did looking toward the stern from the bow past Rupert and Molly's cabin show nothing behind or beyond the ship but open water. There should be a waterfront and a city there. So I added the city to the backgrounds as appropriate, perhaps most noticeably on page 1696. I was assembling the characters and background for the first panel of page 1697 yesterday and realized, "hey wait a minute! The city should be visible from here!"

So there I was, uploading pencils, when I discovered two finished pages NOT in my featured folder. So I put the there, and had to drag and drop them from number 1 to number 930, roughly. The drag and drop scrolling never wanted to go much farther th

Usually every December 16, I get a whole bunch of "Happy Birthdays" here. Maybe the new layout makes this hard to do somehow, It's right on my "cloudmonet" page, underneath some journals.

Hello, are requests, art-trades and collabs open maybe?

Probably not. I'm about as busy as I can stand do be doing what I do already.

Thanks for the watch buddy and stay safe 🙂🤗

Best I ask now.
Since I live in the USA epicenter of the corvid-19 plague (10,000 deaths a day), things are getting psychotic. I am out of meat,vegetables, oleo... and am down to breakfast items.

Some businesses may not reopen after this crisis, being at the "tipping point" already. Not just "mom & pop" stores, but Cruise ships.

I guess that there will be suicides as some are at the "tipping point" and will go into the abyss with just one more setback. 

I have no face mask (can't find any). BUT an accountant friend hopes to provide me with one, Last time I tried to shop, I was ordered out of the store, as I had no face mask. I couldn't even buy the newspaper I was holding when that DAME came & told me to leave. 

Library is closed. Theaters are closed. I WAS planning to pay a pop visit to former co-workers but everything is shut down in NYC. I left messages on a number, but nobody has bothered to relay any to the parties I mentioned in such. I wrote letters, but when they'd get them is uncertain as they are addressed to the college which likely is shut. They never told me their home addresses or home numbers. BTW I was retired years ago due to Republican budget cuts, and, at my age, any job resumes I might send may just get tossed. So my unemployment is not due to the virus. 
Also I am only a shadow of what I was when i was 65. 

Hopefully I can either get a mask or arrange for home delivery.

BTW, avoid eG5 games. They are "pay to play". 

Make yourself a mask. An old pillowcase should work fine.

Fortunantly the accountant came through with face masks. I was able to stock up on food the same day, yesterday. 

I see no end to this crisis yet.
