Obsessively Inspired Happy
I've been happily immersed, obsessed really, with doing new illustrations to improve my portfolio. It's wonderful to feel so inspired and wake up in the early morning thinking of ideas I've been gestating, then put them on paper. My new rep group in NYC has helped me focus in many ways, and begin to really ask 'what type of work do I want'.
I want book covers and plays . Pretty wedding planners. Anything to do with wine or landscape. Dark subjects. Light subjects. I want to do a store display at Saks that shows donkeys in Spring's best new aprons.
And of course I want children's work , and children's books . I've been working so hard to improve and learn and grow in my children's writing. It's fun. I'm obsessed. I've had some feedback on the first version of Pino, and am mulling through how to improve it.
It's a process. So for now, you'll have to be patient. But before I die, I will have a book out there about my little donkey. I made that promise to myself, the universe, and Pino. One can not look in Pino's eyes and tell a lie.
