By the way, you can see the pictures of my 'new art armoire' on my Instagram. So, what happened to my dad's old shelf? It's now holding supplies for the house in the utility room. Mom and I just could get rid of it.
Part one - Rearranging

Inktober is fast approaching!
I'm getting ready.
I'm planning my butt off.
I have preliminary drafts and thumbnail sketches!
I ordered some new supplies. Will be laying out current supplies this weekend.
Bookmarked the new art prompts from Inktober's official social media.
I'll be posting on my personal Facebook account and on my public Instagram and Twitter accounts with the hashtag #INKTOBER and #INKTOBER2018
Looking forward to participating again and to your viewing and comments!

Tribes of Kai takes place on a prehistoric world. The technology is Stone Age. Belief system is in its nascent stages. Knowledge is passed down orally and language are cave dweller drawings. Anthropomorphic wildcats that have 'centaur' like bodies are the dominant species and the main characters. One such individual thinks differently from the tribe and is exiled. Through lush painted comic panels and a hypnotic narration, the reader wonders: is the protagonist a harbinger of doom? Or a savior?
Tribes of Kai is written by the mesmerizing storyteller Lance Haunrogue (Writer) and each-panel-a-gallery-masterwork Daren Bader (Artist).
Please look for Tribes of Kai where ever books are sold, on eBay, or through Flesk Publications website and you can check out the publisher on Facebook!
I don't know why I stopped shopping at Hamilton Books aka Edward R. Hamilton Bookseller. In the early 1990s, Edward R. Hamilton mailed newspaper catalogues. There was only an email address and hard copy order forms. But the books were beautiful.
Unlike other online bookstores, Hamilton sells OVERSTOCK BOOKS, which simply means these titles are BRAND-SMACKING NEW. NOT USED.
These are simply extra copies left over after all bookstores, libraries, and educational institutions have received their allotted quantity.
Below is my first order in years. I also put a review over a year ago on their Facebook page. I've since ordered more 'gifts' for myself.
From Left to Right
1. "Marble Season" by Gilbert Hernandez
2. "The Best American Comics 2013" Edited by Jeff Smith (Creator of "Bone" graphic novel series)
3. Patricia A. McKillip Omnibus - 3 novels in 1
4. "Black Images In the Comics: A Visual History" by Fredrik Stromberg
