What I'm Working On

I signed up for Sketchbook Project 2012, choosing the theme 'Treehouse'. I keep waffling on my approach. But even the waffling is good for me. I'm filling pages in my regular sketchbook with ideas for the cover, spreads, and possibly a very loose story arc. Who knows what the final product will be, but it's still great exercise for my drawing hand (and brain).
I'm also spending a little time working on my long-suffering picture book dummy. I hope to bring a revised version to a critique group next month. I have 4 pages to edit, and cover sketches to play with before then. I used to wonder at author/illustrators telling tales of how many years it would take for projects to reach fruition. Oh, how I totally understand that now!
