Train Set



Boy do I love drawing any kind of scene that involves rain!

I'm working on a story right now (not connected to the sketch above) that I'm so excited about, but it needs to be fully dummied out in book form before I can present it to an editor. It's one of those books where the illustrations tell a little over half of the story and the text alone just wouldn't do it justice. Of course the minute this happens all my other projects suddenly pile up (very fun projects so I can't complain about that)! I guess I'll have to weave a little bit here and there while I'm racing deadlines. A page after dinner, a page when I get up in the morning - eventually the dummy book will get done...right? Right?? :) We shall see.

I couldn't believe it when you said you like drawing rain, but it must be true! This is lovely, it really has a sense of cosyness to the interior which makes the rain feel even more convincing. Good luck with your new book project! :)

Love the rain! I like the scritchy-scratchiness of it. I think I tend to make my rain too regular and orderly.

As a former Children' Librarian, I like that you're illustrating for a book. Can't wait to see what you have to share about it. Very nice illustrations you got here.
