Patience and Perseverence


Having sent out my dummy and facing the long wait for any answer...any kind of answer, I have started work on the OTHER story I was working on before this last story crowded its way into my brain.

The sketches for this one are taking a new turn... slightly more of an edge to these. I am not an 'edgy' illustrator, so to you my edge may seem a bit more rounded *:)

This is a study for one of the spreads in the book. I'll spend some time defining the characters and then strive to keep them consistent throughout the book. Occasionally I'll do a thumbnail color study to use as a reference later. Sometimes I toss these out in favor of another color combo.

Ginger this is just wonderful! I love the whole thing. The girls expression, the cat on the bureau, the bugs, the dots on the woman's dress and her expression. Perfect!

Ginger best of luck on the dummy you sent out. My fingers and toes are crossed for you! I love the looser style on this one, very expressive.
