Just In Time For Christmas?
Well... there's still time left for you to order that last minute gift to give to that Big Head Press fan you love so much. Including if that someone's you. Big Head Press Santa has been busy the last few weeks setting up the Big Head Press Supply Store at Zazzle.com.
From our supply store, you can buy coffee mugs, t-shirts, posters and more,sporting the Big Head Press logo, as well as images from Big Head Press stories like our current running popular slightly weird sci-fi webcomic Quantum Vibe. Many items you can customize their colors. We've stocked the store with a few items to start, and will be adding more over time. Stay tuned for announcements on that.
But the fun part is you can take any of the art work we put up on the zazzle store, and you can apply them to pretty much any product Zazzle will put it on. The list is too long for here. Check it out for yourself. And hurry, only a couple of weeks until Christmas!
The Transcript For This Page
Wide panel. To the left, we see Norman and the girls from behind, looking out the window. To the right, the Sun is 3/4 obscured by the Earth's silhouette. The Earth's disc is surrounded by a thin bright ring that is its atmosphere being illuminated by the Sun. (Remember the Sun's disk is about ¼ the apparent size of the Earth's disc.)
Norman: Look, it's starting.
Reverse angle, Norman and the girls looking out through the window. We see a reflection in the glass of the totally eclipsed Sun, its corona streaming around Earth's disc. Inside the apartment the lighting is subdued, so the three characters are softly back-lit.
Caption: 'I gotta admit, it was an impressive sight.'
Side shot focusing on Robyn inside the apartment, putting her hand on the window glass, which is starting to fog. We can see Norman's hand on her shoulder.
Caption: 'As the Earth's shadow fell across us, I touched the window and could feel it rapidly cooling.'
