In many ways, it's been great just lately, with lots of unusual things going on, and all sorts of activities taking me out of the studio. But I've been missing the normal, run-of-the-mill day, spent at the drawing board. Isn't human nature funny? When I'm embroiled in a book, working to a deadline and drawing every day, I long to be out and about, doing something different!
So this morning it'll be nice to be drawing. I have a baby book idea in my head at the moment, and I'd quite like to spend a little time this week, making a start on sketching out some possibilities. It all depends on when I get the feedback for the US educational job (see An American Cover). The Thanksgiving holiday has slowed up the turnaround a little, but the artwork deadline is Friday, so I should be hearing any time.
I hate waiting though, so think I'll try to forget about it for now. Still, I know what will happen today: I will clear my desk of the US cover bit's and bobs, just get my head together and put pencil to paper to start visualising my new book ideas, and the US job will come in!!
Let's see if I'm right...
