A little more about hats…
Is that our blue haired shipmate?
I see Amy has stumbled her way into the mid-19th century. Good to know she’s alive and well somewhere, somewhen.
Ah, absinthe, so intoxicating. So we see here that absinthe does make the heart grow fonder….
What? You all were thinking the same thing.
Thanks for the tutorial on hats. I’ve been wanting to make one, bought the buckram, but couldn’t find anything on Youtube or elsewhere to give me an idea of how to use it. I wonder how old the hot block/mold was that they used. Here’s how to make a block of your own: http://www.threadbanger.com/episode/THR_20090313. Now I need to figure out a steamer that’s more powerful than a tea kettle.
Not a coincidence that Ella is singing about absinthe as I sip it .
I can only imagine she sounds just like she looks http://youtu.be/JlUukhIvnGg
Amy and absinthe! A perfect way to start my weekend.
“Some suspected it was absinthe…”
Ah, I see Amy lives on, now what did she do to Jacques-Henri?
Amy! So glad to see her here; what a lovely tribute!
Ah! I knew her face looked familiar! I couldn’t place it without reading the other comments though. Lovely! I have a feeling this is going to turn tragic (even more so)…
And without all the tattoos.
You’re all so young; I didn’t recognize Amy as Amy Winehouse right away. I didn’t really follow her career, or know about her until she passed away. It struck me that, that is who you were all referring to after going back about ten pages, looking for an Amy in the blogs. She obviously had a greater impact on (younger) people than I thought. The placement of this cameo does appear to fit the character, who I assume is headed for misfortune as well. I am constantly amazed and impressed with how you (Mark) can flexibly interweave cameos into your complex and carefully laid out storylines, and still meet deadlines for anxious readers, despite a demanding schedule for appearances, and all of the weather related issues back home. I believe all of us appreciate your placing us among your priorities; thank you!
I was just watching Amy videos yesterday. She represents one of the greatest tragedies of our generation. We all stood by and watched someone destroy herself. I resent the people around her who either refused to intervene or somehow gave up on one of the most talented singers I have ever seen.
Enough of my ranting though. This is a lovely tribute.
Also – final picture of the mermaid costume from Halloween – if you are interested:
Wow! Quite daring, but really cool!
So my curiosity is, did you have this tribute planned before her death? Because that would be eerie.
Thanks for that, Mermaidan
@Claire—yes, it’s been there in my script for several years. Before we even started our cameos in the pages. I thought she would still be alive when I’d come to draw her.
Mark, You have created a world that would leave Cyrano de Bergerac humbled.
I wonder if this story doesn’t attract a specific kind of romantic. I myself have two bottles of Absinthe in the cupboard.
Lauren you makes a fine mermy indeed. Worthy of hangin’ from dar bow of any ship. I splice the mainbrace to ya. “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” Da words are Gandhi’s, but Miss Amy lived ‘em. Slán a fhágáil!
Oh my. That is incredible. I suppose the entire chapter now will be even more melancholy than originally planned.
Lady sing the blues so well…
Oh wynne, you’ve nailed it. Mark, here’s the link if you weren’t aware – a perfect song for this chapter. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80ZhVqFUwA0
This sequence is a flush back…
Thanks for posting the video. Very interesting….
Great song! Thanks for that!
Yes, I’ve liked Regina Spektor for a long time. She and I had talked for a while about a graphic novel project for First Second, but it hasn’t materialized yet. She’s an extraordinary talent. And we had one very inebriated lunch.
Cue immediate and intense jealousy – I want to have an inebriated lunch with Regina Spektor! Also, I can only imagine what a graphic novel from her would look like. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it happens after all.
I’m sorry that Amy won’t be here to enjoy it, but I’m sure her family would love the tribute.
Salty, many thanks to you again..
Claire, lovely song by Spektor. At one point in my life, I was told I looked like her, but I am still unfamiliar with her music. I’d like to have an inebriated lunch with her, but then again… I’d like to have an inebriated lunch with any of you.
Until mermaidan brought up her last name, I didn’t realize it was the singer Amy Winehouse either. I saw lots of first-name references, and wondered if I’d missed something.
Lovely tribute to Amy.
