IF - breezy


I didn't want to let another Illustration Friday go by without entering, so I'm digging out another older image that fits the theme pretty well. I luckily have too much going on right now to do a new piece!

I'm working hard on the illustrations for the children's book project I landed. Yay! I still can't believe I'm actually illustrating a children's book! So far, I've - figured out what illustrations will go on each page, made a small storyboard, did some initial sketches of the cover and title page and now I'm working on character sketches of all the quirky character's in the story. So much fun! I am one lucky girl!
