In Blue Jeans with Gold Embroidery


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 :

As for today’s sketch, I’m amazed at the details your eye catches! It looks so lifelike. All the best for your book -- I am sure it will turn out to be fabulous! :)

I have an ever-growing list of books to read, too. And I would hate it if ever I caught up :).
