You must check out Lynne Chapman's blog post today. She has posted a  fun video on how she creates her illustrations with pastel. She's working on a new book called Swap! about Lucy, who turns into a dog.  Very fun! Watch the video all the way to the end as she does with the palm of her hand what I do in Photoshop.  :) So cool to see an artist have the nerve to create artwork with delicate pastels and not fear making a mistake. I guess it's much like painting in watercolor. I, on the otherhand, would have put that delicate pattern on the chair in a photoshop layer!

Also check out her previous posts, as Lynne generously talks about her process throughout the creation of this book. She is just one of my favorite children's illustrators!
