In recent weeks I was in discussions with some people regarding possibly illustrating their children’s book. I came up with the following sketches which were rejected for being too “colouring book”. Ouch! The whole process wasn’t exactly the best experience, but at least now I can use the characters for something else. I like the dog. 🙂
Thank you for sharing your sketches and a little about your experience. It is good to hear that you like your work – that’s really all that matters in the end. 🙂
Sketch #4 of “Tammy” reminds me of you – self-portrait?!
Keep up the good work on getting things done and getting your work out there!!
Thanks for your support! I thought I might as well post about it, as it was a learning experience at any rate. 🙂
Hey, you have infinitely more chances of succeeding with your various attempts than someone stuck at the gate…uh-hmm… 🙂
Ha, I suppose! Although sometimes getting sent back to the drawing board can take a while to recover from, so it can be gate-like as well. Thanks for your continuing support! 🙂
Only if we let it 🙂 Artistic expression – and probably everything can be boiled down to that – seems to me to be like a relationship: it won’t work with everyone! And when it works, it doesn’t feel like work, it doesn’t require work, it just works – and it nourishes both the expressor and the ultimate interpreter (the observer).
