I met with Tracy Bishop again for a sketch date today. We usually meet to draw from life, which has been a great way for me to get over my FEAR OF DRAWING IN PUBLIC. Today, we both used the time to work on some personal projects. I've been up to my ears illustrating organic gardening books lately, so I haven't been creating characters like I used to. I was so happy to let these guys out!
After sketching, we hit our local kids' bookstore, Hicklebee's. Love that store! I've had this book, When Blue Met Egg, on my list of must buys for a couple of months. It's illustrated by Lindsay Ward, who used to work at Hicklebee's, by the way. I love her use of collage!
