Making Progress

Whew - getting there. I feel like the entire day today was one continuous interruption (that's an oxymoron, I know) with kids needing something every few minutes. I think I've got most of the samples done that I need for the book. Now on to a couple of "step-outs' and a few miscellaneous illustrations. Oh - I keep forgetting an entire sketchbook to fill. And the props to gather. And a few final edits to the writing. That's next week. This writing a book business is looking an awful lot like a lot of work.

My heartfelt thanks goes out to all the intrepid and wonderful friends who were willing to try some design exercises. They are trickling in and looking wonderful. I might actually make this deadline yet. Um - perhaps wishful thinking on my part.

heads down - working hard

I've got some serious deadline issues. All the artwork for the book needs to be done in just the next few weeks. Plus getting ready to shoot a couple of segments for QATV. I'm trying my best to dovetail the two - using some of the same work for both. Here's a pretty picture of my new baby... getting ready to sandwich and quilt a funky color wheel.

I'm averaging six small pieces per day. No time to photograph and blog - barely enough time to feed my children and get them where they need to go. I can't believe I'm missing the Olympics. Hmmm.... maybe it's time to do some of the sketchbook work - in front of the telly? Looking at the list - maybe not. Sigh.
