I know I said I’d be quiet over the next couple of weeks, but I guess that makes it a little boring around here. So I’ll have to check in a few more times before the book is complete!
The book has been so fun to work on! I hope you’ve been enjoying it and the gradual uncover! I NEVER would have thought I could do something like this in such a crazy SHORT amount of time! Normally, I would put in many many more hours illustrating and refining and illustrating and refining, but in a way its nice to not have the pressure of making something “perfect”. This daily format just doesn’t allow the time for that. I only really had one frustrating day (yesterday) when I wished I had a whole extra week (at least) to finish the piece. It was just so involved! I normally think of working on a book as taking months to accomplish, but I guess you never know what you’re capable of until you just have to do it!
The story writing part is tricky (on many levels) too. I won’t get into that now, but I promise I don’t consider myself a writer too. Just an illustrator, at best. Maybe a doodler, in the least. haha. An illustrator with a little story to tell. Hope you don’t mind!
So here’s to another new week, and half of a book in completion!
I’ve missed you guys this week. Drop a line just to say hi! I’d love it!
