Finally created a new book! Going for a universal theme “Laughter”. Also taking the plunge and putting this baby in print. Simple and loose illustrations. Just flowing with a pen and some watercolor. Whew! Feels good. When you laugh coming soon….
Playing around with ideas and techniques. Getting so caught up with work and devoting time to ideas that have neglected to post. Day 3, 4, and 5. Day 3…started with nothing, yep nothing. Well that is an idea. Which led to ‘what is nothing?’ ‘How would nothing look?’ Day 4 became escapes and retreats for …
Day 2 off to a bang. Title brainstorm…ended up with a fun idea for a book for boys…gross rules! Trying out gouache for the first time. I know as an aspiring illustrator I should be acquainted already. I am in heaven. One of those moments of pure joy. I’m in love.
Chose a perfect book for journaling ideas for PiBoIdMo (I’m an altered book junkie). “Let’s Make a Book” discarded from a local library . Trick I use in generating ideas….clip several phrases from magazines, stuff in pocket for later use. Pull out and use as prompt for illustration, story, poem, etc.
Changed the cover design yet again for the kindle version of “When You Laugh”. Don’t know why I am so indecisive about this one….rrrrrr
