One of the drawbacks of my lovely, attic studio, is the fact that there is very little flat wall space: the walls not taken up with doors and windows mostly slope up to the apex.
In my previous studio, I would tack the artwork all over the walls as I finished it, gradually filling the room with colour. This is the safest way to temporarily store large, unmounted, pastel drawings (as long as you are careful not to lean back absentmindedly against the wall...).
It also meant I could constantly refer to the artwork as I worked on new pieces: important to keep the tonal values consistent and to match colours across the book.
They are putting together a glossy brochure of new projects, for the Bologna Children's Book Fair next month, and my editor has decided to use the skating lamb and the flip-flop frog spread to promote Baby Goes Baaaa!
If I'm honest, it's a bit of a nuisance to have to break the momentum and start cutting mount card and parcelling them up, but I don't really mind, as it's very important that the book it promoted as powerfully as possible.
