Welcome! Our characters are finally ready after a busy week. Lots of querying on my end (never my favorite thing to do) and more waiting for responses (least favorite part of the story making process). I do have a couple local exciting events coming up after just finishing my Skype with JFK elementary last week. One is an October 23rd, Books and Authors Event at Leon & Lulu. And in early December I'll be participating in a Lake Orion Library holiday book signing. Stay tuned for more details on that actual day and time.
Also, minor website changes will be attempted soon! Little tweaks here and there will reflect some of the school visit/picture book making progress that has been going on.
Now - on to characters! What did you create? Our dog CHEWY has made another appearance as well as MAN BUN BOY and a very happy FOX.
This week I combined two of my shapes to create one character. This resulted in FOX and his really big FISH. I wanted to color up my design as is, but did not want this profile shot. My design evolved quite a bit from the intial sketch...
I did some quick sketch studies on real foxes than moved on to some character development thinking my FISH was going to turn into a much wanted pet gift for FOX...
Meet FOX GETS A PET FISH! I added many more details to my color design. A decorated den, some ripped up wrapping paper, a more kid-like fox character who is completely ecstatic about his new birthday gift and a miniaturized fish. Maybe FISH gets bigger and bigger in a story...? As for how FOX feels about his fun new friend - I tried to inject the same enthusiasm we had when we got our new puppy. Pure love and joy! Fox DO like fish in a friendly way, right?
Thanks for stopping by!
