It's been a snowy day in SE Wisconsin and perfect for working on illustrations for my new book,
AN OWL FOR CHRISTMAS.
While I did lots of drawing today for the book, the most time-consuming part of it all is getting everything placed on the word document so that it's in the proper format and ready to send to the printer. After lots of drawing and computer time today, I'm about a fourth of the way done.
Much different from my bright and colorful ABC book, O is for the BIG OAK TREE, I want both the illustrations and the words in this book to be soft, and quiet, and old-fashioned. I'm still not sure if I want to leave the illustrations as pen and ink, or do a light wash of watercolor.
Here's the cover and a page from today's work -
O is for the BIG OAK TREE is sold out! Thanks everyone! I'll be picking up the next printing this week, so you can still get one in time for Christmas! They can be ordered here.
Thanks for checking in!
