In Progress

Moleskine in progress

I was hoping to have the four pieces I've been working on in Mike's book done today so that I could post them, but I'm still working on the fourth, so I'll just content myself by posting a little "teaser" shot. You can see my laptop open as I work: I've started scanning my sketches and coloring them in the computer before working them out on paper. I don't always get the best idea for colors until I've been playing with something for a while, so I like that I can work it out in the computer before committing.

Two of these birds are going to be nicknamed Blixa & Nick because my husband has been playing The Bad Seeds all afternoon and I can't look at them without their songs going through my head. Maybe the third can be Kylie Minogue...

NICE work.

I've done some computer planning too, but my results weren't this good.
