Well this is the start of book 6:) I still cannot believe that 191 pages are up- I am just finishing up the inks of 7 which took a little longer to do, yet part of that reason is the fact I am doing a lot more commission work. Kids got to eat, and until I can make things a little more stable, I work through bean second.

This is also the reason for a hefty buffer zone…. It allows me to do other work.:)

In pre-industrial times cloth was too valuable to use when there were other things that could be put to the same use. the materials for cloth had to be gathered by hand, combed, spun into threads and then woven on a small hand loom into squares that were then sewn together, As you may imagine, this took a long time. So, moss for moisture absorption and padding and spiderwebs (strong latex threads) for binding wounds was often used instead of cloth. If you were lucky enough to born into a household for which someone had built a small standing loom, you were extremely fortunate, but usually that cloth was sold at market.

Trav, I love your trees! And this one with a house growing with it is just awesomeness personified.

    Ohhh more info to play with:) Thank you my friend.

    I am glad you like my trees. Trees are like people- they are unique and there is always something different about them.

So, which came first: the house or the tree?

I really have nothing to say about this page, but I did want to comment that your work is fantastic, Trav. I've been following it for about a month now, and I'm very impressed. And I read a LOT of webcomics, too, so I'm not always easy to impress. 🙂

Your world feels so very alive, and your characters are very real. I will definitely be eagerly watching this one!

    Why thank you- I am glad you are enjoying this and that you find the world alive- that is my goal. Thank you again.

Yeuck! Sealing wounds with cobwebs? XD I'm sure it works better than it sounds but.. all I can think is yeuck, no cobwebs for me! At least Bean is not a girl 🙂

    yup – I researched that out by talking to a friend studying to be an er surgeon, thought it was cool and found how it could fit the scene perfect. I guess when you are in a pinch and not really coherent – cobwebs might just have to do.

    It's not so much sealing as holding the edges together. Fresh cobwebs are not any dirtier that most things and cleaner than many. They are tremendously strong for their weight, and when layered on would be sort of a natural sticky band-aid. If "Mama" doesn't have sewing skills, then it would be better to use cobwebs than to leave an incision open.

    That being said, it would probably be better to use an antiseptic herbal poltice and hold it in place with a wrapped bandage of cloth if one is using natural remedies.

      Stuff like this is so cool to me- thanks for the added clarification:)

I think I grew up 🙁
Because now I can't stop thinking what happens if that tree gets old.

    Susiewan » 10 Jan 2011 » Reply

    The house'll get bigger. 😉

    Trav the bean » 10 Jan 2011 » Reply

    what if the tree is already old? what if it has been there for centuries?:)

      John » 10 Jan 2011 » Reply

      I didn't thought this possibility 🙂
      And beside growing up, I lost my abilities to "dream" while being awake.

        Trav the bean » 10 Jan 2011 » Reply

        see there is always possibilities… and you are never too old to dream:)

Have your say!
