Well it's been a tough few weeks. A late fall of snow provided some real life inspiration for the Waltz of Snowflakes in Ella Bella's latest adventure. This image is the Waltz of the Snowflakes at a very early stage. It looks a lot more fun than the freezing slushy stuff I've been battling with outside!
And unfortunately it coincided with a series of school workshops which were either poorly attended (children would rather play in the snow!), or I myself was unable to get there. To cap it all, my early mornings, late nights and freezing cold studio resulted in a bout of the 'Flu, so the final stages of the book were shrouded in a whirl of fevers and exhaustion. But the book is FINISHED and has gone to Orchard books to be prepared for publication.
It's too early to say how it will all look. Until the three layers for each image is assembled, who knows? But I am a little bit excited...
