Making The Moon Prince requires thousands upon thousands of reference photos. Here's one of Queen Mathilde being posed by Max and Molly's mom, Melissa.
The Moon Prince will be posting “reruns” for the next year or so. This is because I'm currently revising the older pages of the book so the color and style of the drawings are consistent from beginning to end. As a result, the “reruns” are actually quite different from the way they looked when I first posted them years ago. I hope you enjoy seeing these newly spiffed-up pages, and I hope you'll stick around to see the last part of The Moon Prince, starting in the fall of 2018.

Since the last couple of pages of The Moon Prince have featured a young girl (Molly, of course) standing guard with a rifle, I thought it might be interesting to post an old, old picture of my grandfather (the real Max and Molly's great-grandfather), William Fraser.
This photo was taken around 1902, and shows Bill with his pet black bear (really!) and a toy gun. I believe at the time he was living near Keewatin (a Cree Indian word which means "Blizzard of the North"), Canada.
