All the Growing Things started out as a little doodle in a note book. I think it might have been a math notebook, because that is what happens to math note books in this household.

I started with Maude examining her lilac bush, and expanded from there. I’d also (at the time of the first sketch) been having problems with cats pooping in my new gardening area. Which is always an unpleasant find. Originally Maude was going to fight the forces of evil felines, but instead, she’s going to fight some made-up monsters. Because they’re easier to draw.


Here’s the first page, if you like to start things at the beginning!
