YEAH - My new camera arrived! It will take me some time to figure it out, but so far I am loving it. Here are some pictures of what I have been drawing lately. I took an old board book (a young child's book with cardboard thick pages), and covered it with text pages from an old book and painted gesso on top of that - and then I drew. The nice thing is if you don't like how the pages turn out, you can just gesso another layer right on top. The pictures I am drawing are not supposed to look realistic - good thing! I prefer a look that is a little "off" - not sure really how to describe it. I will continue to work at it.

I have managed to complete 7 inside spreads and the front cover. 2 more inside spreads and the back cover to go before I am finished.

I did get outside today to take some pictures, and will download and share them soon.
