a brand new day

September 6th, 2013 | 4 Comments

For the last five years, I've been pretty busy. I counted, and since 2008 I've illustrated around thirty books. So as you might imagine and hopefully understand, it's been a while since I drew pictures just because it's something I like doing. But this last week I've been kind of at it. There are some projects that are hovering over this process and they make themselves known as I'm scribbling, (robots, astronauts, lettering), but they're not the sole reason for doing these nor are they the determined destination. Let's say that for the last couple of years I've been sketching on the interstate, in a hurry to get somewhere. It's nice now taking the windy little roads through towns and through the back woods, not sure where I'll stop and what I might see.*
In related news, I finally put together an exposure unit for screen-printing, so maybe these will lead to that. Maybe I'll try taking some life-drawing sessions and see what happens as well.

*(I mean, really, we all know what I'll stop and see. Robots, astronauts, monsters, weird-looking dudes, cats, birds, and maybe jet packs. Right?)

    Let me guess what's coming up… Jon Scieszka's Space Robot Alphabet, illustrated by Brian Biggs?

    Something like that. No alphabet.

    Thanks Adam.
