Aside from pumping out purchase orders for our CRAZY Back-to-School Month at Art Supply Warehouse during the day, I have then been going home to work on another book project… which I’d love to post interiors of but have not yet had the ok! So far, a cover sketched, two interiors, and one spread done! I also did a dozen or so character sketches prior to this… I can’t wait to be finished so I can post some images of this book!
Meanwhile, I just received an initial deposit to start working on another book for a Father-Daughter story. :) I finally get to paint some animals in this book! I’ll have to ask if I can post images as they are completed.
Aside from this, I was approached to do a character study/sketch for a large book project as well… See below for my version of what I thought the character should look like:
I wish I could write a bit about the story as it is based on a true story! I wanted to cry drafting some of these images as it has a real tragedy involved with it as well… But it ends with hope!! :)
For those of you who are going or were thinking of attending, I am going to be going to the SCBWI Editor’s Day in Fullerton on Sept 30-Oct 1st. :) I already have some new business cards and a brand new portfolio to put my printed images inside! Yikes! Its a bit pricey but I have not attended an SCBWI event in so long!!! I am pretty excited!!
Tomorrow I will be heading to my mother’s house to babysit her three cats, two rats, five dogs (one pit bull, one shitzu, one dachsund-terrier mutt, and two teacup chihuahuas). I’m afraid… very afraid… :)
Wish me luck!
