I am riding the high of having turned in a full set of sketches for a book project a day early! So far this project is pure joy. Where is the stress? The last minute panic? The agonized decision making? What makes this project so different? There are only animal characters in this book, and this seems to be freeing me up to just draw, without obsessing over who these characters are too much. And I was given amazing image directions by the editor. I am feeling like one lucky lady to have such an awesome job.
Since I can't share my sketches yet, I am posting an unused sketch from an earlier incarnation of the project. Time to get some fresh air!
