Although I haven't updated in awhile I have not abandoned this project. After the last post I sort of hit a wall. There was something really off with the images and I couldn't really figure out what. I wasn't interested and I couldn't make myself work with them.
Then a couple of weeks ago i had the chance to show one of my other books to a class from Johns Hopkins University. I noticed that people had reactions (I hope good but I suppose they could have been bad) to my drawings. Something finally clicked, using clip art was not working out for me at all. I enjoy drawing, people respond to my DRAWING. The other was just not going to work out for me.
Sooo, literally back to the drawing board! Now I am finally ready to scan in images and layout the pages. For real.
Here's a preview of a couple of the new, non-clip art related drawings. The color is off because of the light in my studio but it does make it look kind of cool and moody...... *okay so I guess it's just one photo. My LJ photo woes continue. Uploaded file. rotated, saved just like the one below but the other photo just keeps loading sideways.....sigh.
