A day in the life- In blue jeans with Gold Embroidery
color pencils 8"x10"
I have been nervously working on The Fiction Project and it is taking me a lot lot longer to complete each page than I anticipated. When I was testing the paper I was mainly concerned with how much of the work was going to show through on the reverse side of each (thin) page. I discovered it is much more than my experiments showed -especially since I find myself coloring in layers. To my dismay, the colors tend to smudge on this paper and I am spending more time than I care to, cleaning up the mess. But, as I struggle with the narration and the illustrations, I have developed an enormous respect for writer-illustrators. What was I thinking when I signed up?
On a much happier note, I have been tagged by Sanctified Spaces with an award and I am deeply touched. I extend my heartfelt 'thank you' for the honor :)
The rules of this award consist of revealing 7 things about myself and then passing the award on to seven others.
1. I think I already reveal too much about myself in my blog :)
2. My list of books to read is too long and the stack by my bedside is too high. I know I will never catch up!
3. I have way too many art and craft supplies (and books).
4. I am always in awe of all musicians, artists and dancers.
5. And athletes!
6. I like to go on walks.
7. Chocolate rules!
And my nominees are :
6. Rice N Spice
