When creating a story there are always back stories which have to be developed but don’t get to be placed front and center. But think about the other love story — Felipe (the black sheep of his wealthy family) fought for years to protect what was rightfully his nephew’s. He WON against Goliath. He did it for love — love for his deceased sister and her quiet lonely son.
As a reward he does get undying loyalty from Elan, who keeps his uncle as a trusted friend and business partner for all this life.
On towards the main love story, as frustrating as it may be.
Dapper Elan – you might recognize the pose of Marcel from One Dapper Street — a great artist resource for men clothes and male pose references.
Ooh, the tide might turn.
P.S. Last two weeks of May I’m out-of-town. Be sure to subscribe to get a reminder when updated. And/or check out tumblr and new deviantArt for non-update sketches and stuff (I’m always doing something).

This week’s update
Between having a cold and working on my new “space” (see below), I just had time to muse on book covers for Vols 7+. Above is a confusing mix of beards and old glasses, I know. Next week will be announcements about Vols 5 and 6.
And behold — the first time I’ll have a dedicated space for art (besides sitting on my bed). Plenty of light for my bad eyes, my desk, and soon a little couch and lamps.
