Oh, and as always I relied on the craptastic Babelfish internet translation machine for all the Hebrew on this page. The first panel has the soldiers saying "What's he doing?!" Where's he going?!!" The soldier in the second panel is saying "Be careful! Do you want to get killed?!" Unfortunately I think the internet translation machine may have really screwed me there but since I know absolutely no Hebrew I have no choice but to write what Babelfish belched up on my screen. In the third panel the soldier says in Hebrew "He is speaking Arabic" and so the other soldier addresses Saladin in bad Arabic (which is written as English in this graphic novel.) Yeah, I think it's confusing too. Well, it's late.
This is the last page of my graphic novel adaptation of Max Brooks' Bethlehem, Palestine story for a while. I'm taking a sort of semi-break from drawing for a month while I get in training for a hiking trip in August. I'll be spending four days hiking in this gorgeous landscape with my sister and her husband.
Also, to add extra difficulty to my workout routine, I've just been diagnosed with a pretty aggressive cellulitis infection. That itchy rash I mentioned in my last blog entry wasn't a soy allergy, thank goodness, but it was potentially as serious. Now my upper arm is swollen and blistered and hot and scabbed and just awful. It's sore too and my GP has prescribed an elephant-sized dose of antibiotics to deal with it. Crossing my fingers and hoping it works!
Anyway, that's my whine. I have a painful infection. I'm tired. I hate my work. My finances stink. I'm out of shape. Etc. Etc. Same old story. All whine, no cheese. I'm still a vegan (which is probably the only good news to come out of this lousy week.)
