picture book dummy
Dummy. That's me, not the mock up I'm trying to do! Picture books are HARD (whine, whine.) My PB is about a dog and some kittens. Is that original or what? Actually, it's been fun. And pasting the words onto a "dummy" book taught me a lot about what could be done with the art. So now I'm (ulp!) sketching dogs. Trying to retain that same "fun" element and banish those ugly little prodding voices that say, "What do you think you're doing? You're not a picture book writer! You don't know how to draw!" SSSSSSSS. Go away! Be gone! I'm having a great time NOT thinking about publishing for a change.
