Sneak Peek

Well, here is a sneak peek at one of the interior pages for a children's book I've been working on for Charlesbridge. I just sent a PDF of the book for approval... very nerve-wrecking. Have you ever been staring at something for so long, all you can see is blurry??? Well, that's sort of how I feel. I don't really think I'll relax until I see the actual printed book, too.
There is still the cover in the works and I am sure there are other little elements as well as revisions!
Still, it's always nice to reach this point!
I had my first two hours off in a long time this morning while the pages were being scanned... HAHA.

Now I am waiting on approval on a couple projects and also the hunt for the apartment should now commence!!
Keeping busy... can't wait to have our apartment set up... I have lots of updating to do!!!!

Happy Sunday peeps!

hooray! Welldone, you! I know that feeling well, but be rest-assured that it looks great. I particularly like the sad-looking little girl- great narrative there. Hope the finished thing comes over to our side of the pond. Masses of luck with the other projects too.

haha, thanks guys!
I think the scan actually didn't really capture the washes all that well... but I hope they kind of convey what it should be!!

Great work as always! You're work has so much vibrance and character. I love your portrayal of kids, it's magical. Best of luck, and good hunting. :)
