Works in Progress
The end is in sight here at the University of Edinburgh. I'm working like a mad dog to complete projects for my graduate show. (I'll admit some of my blog features have slowed down as a result - sorry!) Happily, I have several projects completed already, like my Marginal Creatures, Me and the Wolf, My First Protest, Animal Alphabet (and the myriad of pillows that go with that one), and my trees. Here are some works-in-progress from MerBaby's Lullaby, a project I'm working on with the illustrious Jane Yolen (nys).
I've drawn many spreads two or three times to get them right and on some, I'll decide after I get the colors done. I hope to have a dummy finished by the end of spring break... I know, that's supposed to be a spring break. But no. Not when you have this much to do! But truly, it's the same for all my classmates. In our first year, we were encouraged to take trips during vacations. For our final year, we were advised to, "take advantage of an empty studio," which we have. The four of us, graduating with an MFA this June, have been in the studio non-stop, heads down, earphones on, work, work, work. I'd complain, but you know I LOVE IT! Stan calls my studio my 'happy place' - I agree! *nys - not yet sold
