a thousand sheets of paper

This summer I was busy with three new children's book projects, one for Highlights and two for duopress. I can't share any of the art yet, but I do have something to show for myself: over a thousand sheets of printer paper, full of pencil sketches, charcoal smudges, and ink marks. Most of these sheets were scanned several times. (Thank you, trusty scanner!) In the end I compiled them into 24 beautiful full-color images, and 120 black and white ink drawings, all of which will be available for viewing in 2012.

I saw the Highlight's project. Excellent. Fantastic work. Marvelous illustrations. I love what you did with the poem and it is so much fun to see it as a Bonus Mini Book. My favorite is the girl in Spring. Which is your favorite? In your mind, does the little girl have a name? Thank you so much for making my poem look wonderful and full of fun for kids.
