My feet are killing me this week. I am at the tracing-up stage with my Bears on the Stairs project, which means I'm standing up at the light box all day.
This bit is very tedious: I first have to precisely measure and cut the paper for each individual illustration, marking a 5mm bleed all round, and a 10mm edging to trim off at the end. That stage alone takes a few hours (especially given all the cups of tea needed to keep sane).
Then I enlarge all the drawings on the computer (I'm working at 123%), print them out and stick them back together (I only have an A4 printer, so it takes four-and-a-bit A4 sheets per spread, as you can see above).
One by one, I then trace them onto my pink pastel paper at the light box. This also means that, if it's a bright day, I have to pull all the blinds and spend my day in the dark!
