Ruby and Esme update







Here is a peek at the latest stage of Ruby and Esme. Kathie and I haven't even had time to sit down and talk but we are setting
up a meeting for next week to catch up. I know that Kathie has a vision that will add to these images but I think they are perfect! Funny how Kathie's scrap sketches are equal to my finished pieces! I revised the manuscript trimming out a few more unnecessary words that will hopefully make the story flow a bit better. And wouldn't it be dandy if this could be an old school cloth book! It won't, because that would not be affordable or sustainable...but it would be lovely!

Oooh. I love these. Will they remain faceless like that? I love that and it lends itself to belonging solely to each individual reader. Fantastic. And I hear you on the sketch vs. finished piece thing. Indeed.

There is no glory without pain. Keep on chugging. These rock. I love your attention to the physical shapes. It's as if a photo was taken and then sketched. I agree with Bernadette . . .the facelessness is perfect! I am officially to busy to live the blog world but I'm so glad I dropped in to see these.
