Three years later

Starting in 2010, I set myself the goal to make an annual zine and mix CD of my favorite music for each year. Prior to that, I had been doing a different annual zine about our family life (since 2007). Unfortunately, after writing half of my zine for 2012, I simply stopped working on it. Yesterday, I finally finished that zine. It only took three years! I finished the writing, (around 9,000 - 10,000 words) a few weeks ago, but I couldn't figure out how to draw the main cover image. I always knew it would be a werewolf howling at an orange moon, in tribute to my two favorite albums of the year - Frank Ocean's Channel Orange, and Fiona Apple's The Idler Wheel... (from which I included the song "Werewolf"). I'm really pleased with the final cover image. And now I can finally move on to another project!
