New Colorist [ Jan 15, 2015 ]
We are pleased to announce that Lea Jean Badelles, who had filled in as a temporary colorist for Zeke Bieser last Spring, is joining us as our regular colorist. She colored the Leap of Faith guest strip for us and is doing the colors over Scott's line art going forward. Lea Jean hails from the Philippines, and you can see some of her other work at her Deviant Art page.
Zeke is continuing on his own, doing commission work and a bit of real-life work out from underneath his father's shadow. We wish him the best.

The Transcript For This Page
Rando Greene is sitting at a table at a sidewalk cafe. We can see a sign 'Cafe de Quark' nearby. Rando is reading something on a pop-up holoscreen.
Medium shot of Rando, from the POV of someone standing on the other side of his table. He's looking up at his interlocutor.
Voice: Mr. Greene, please pardon the intrusion ...
Looking over Rando's shoulder at the interlocutor. It's a tall, tanned woman with flowing blonde hair, and she is dressed to kill.
Woman: ... but I'm in need of a publicist and my friend referred me to you.
Rando: Ah ... please have a seat, Ms -?
The woman is now seated across the small table from Rando.
Woman: Paula Steele. I'm an actress, and I sing a little. I was referred by Obie Carlson, my manager.
Rando: Oh yeah, Obie. Why didn't he call to set up an appointment?
Full two-shot of Rando and Steele. We can see her playing footsie with him under the table.
Steele: He's, um, busy with some kind of legal issue. And I thought it best to meet you in person.
Steele: To find out if you're as ... good as Obie says you are.
Looking over Steele's shoulder at Rando. He's looking interested.
Rando: Oh, Obie has no idea how good I am.
Rando: So, tell me a little about your, um, professional background.
Close-shot under the table, in Steele's lap. She's got a device about the size and shape of a thumb drive and is pointing it towards Rando.
Steele: Well, I studied at the Mulberry Academy, and have had speaking roles in a dozen A-Trade shows, including three musicals.
Steele: I'd like to show you my portfolio. Can we go to your office?
Steele and Greene arise from the table, Rando dabs a napkin at his mouth, having finished his breakfast. Steele is all smiles.
Rando: Sure, it's not far. But I hope you don't mind that it's a home-office.
Rando: I like to keep my overhead low.
Steele: I don't mind at all.
