Good News!

Hey everyone! Sorry for being a bit absent from the boards lately. Things have been rather busy for me.

I DID contract and receive advance from the publisher mentioned in my most recent post, which is great news! I get to officially do what I've been setting out to do - illustrate a book! Lately, I've been working on final character sketches for the client and am getting ready to make the dummy! Between this and full-time teaching, my plate is getting pretty full but I wouldn't trade if for a thing.

Signing the contract was an awesome moment...then I realized I had lots to do, so I freaked a tad! Now I'm in full-blown creative mode.

Hope to get some images posted soon!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

HI Pete,
Congrats again! :) I am in the same boat...when I got the job for my book, I suddenly went into full creative block and started freaking out...LOL After I signed the contract, it suddenly got real clear and I was able to sketch the whole thing out to my satisfaction...I am glad to hear I am not the only one though who had a freakout.... :)
Love to see some sketches. :)
Happy New Year!
Christy
