Almost chuckled. I have a sketchbook. Who would have thought?
Not an artist, or illustrator, not by any stretch of anyone’s imagination. But. I am enjoying this process. It is new, interesting and really a lot of fun.
I have made a series of thumbnails. Little tiny scribbles of what might be on the pages to go along with the words. Some of the characters and scenes I have been working on since Thanksgiving.
Last week in order to move to the next stage of creating this book for a very young grandson of mine, it became apparent I needed a better light box that using a window and painter’s tape. Some days the sun is just too bright, others the time to work is best at night because of appointments during the day.
I didn’t realize light boxes are so expensive. So, I wandered around and found a cheap wooden box, a cheap frame with glass, and bought some clearance fairy lights to put in the box, and T-DA! My very own light box. Tried it out and works just wonderful for me. Better yet, if I don’t do anymore drawing after this, all items are reusable in their original form.
Don’t you love when things happen like that. All good. I love all good stuff.
