Sketch and sketch again...

On the left, a quick sketch done in haste a few weeks ago. On the right, a new sketch that corrects a few problems and will be used in Photoshop to go to finished. I tired not to get too tight which is a problem when revisiting work.

Book idea sketch

I'm working on some sketches for a new book idea. I need to learn to do rougher sketches at the beginning! Ah well...

Next week I'll start sharing some sketches from my new book coming out, THE PECULIAR PIG! From Nancy Paulsen Books coming June 18! About a month away!

Have a great weekend!

Giving procreate a try

I've been learning a little about the Procreate app. This is an attempt to sketch on it. I use it on an iPad (not an iPad Pro but it's still pretty good!) with the Apple Pencil and a screen protector called PAPERLIKE which gives the feeling of drawing on paper. It's all new to me but it is fun! Still playing with the cardinals so I think it might be time to dig the picture book story I wrote with cardinal characters out of the drawer. (How's that for splitting a phrasal verb?!) Happy Sunday!

Lost Sock Memorial Day

It's Lost Sock Memorial Day and she is celebrating it first with a fashion show parade and then a picnic outside. Ahhh.

More cardinals!

The cardinal from last week got me thinking about a story that's been in the drawer for a long time. Yup, there are cardinals! So here are some more... don't ask me why Grandma is wearing a scarf. I don't know yet!
