Okki - Complications and progress

Medical problems have been seriously halting up production lately. I wanted to have all eight episodes finished by the 17th of May, but on the 16th I suffered a major burn to my abdomen. I was unfit for work until Thursday that week. On the following Saturday, a tooth-filling in the front of my mouth fell out, exposing one of my frontmost teeth's nerves to the air! I couldn't get to a dentist's until the next day, so I spent Saturday in agony. Sunday was spent travelling to and from a dentist's on the other side of Brisbane. At least now I know the value of working in medical emergencies into buffer time for a project's schedule.

Currently I am in the final three weeks of my semester, so the completion of Okki is absolutely imperative. I have given Andrew Spark the worst case scenario that they will be completed by the end of the month and the best case scenario of having them done by Wednesday - we'll just have to wait and see.

Home Stretch

Well, this is it! Okki is officially due by the 17th. That's a week from now.

I am currently working on a few episodes at once and right now I am close to finishing Okki Meets the New Kid.

Don't choke!

Just about done on another episode, specifically episode 3-2, "Okki Meets His Match". This episode was a pain as it was mostly dialogue, though the jellyfish bully was loads of fun to draw.

The final due date for the remaining five episodes is May 17th. Here goes nothing!
