So I've been reading... (what's new?) On the right, a lovely book about a little boy whose father is severely depressed while the mother has gone to Australia for work and never calls her son. The boy is cared for by the fun grand-mother. It could be sad (and it is, at times) but it's mostly funny and poetical and slightly magical, all things I love in a book.
On the right is a book whose American original title is "Happiness sold separately", which is the exact contrary of the french title. It happens often, I really don't understand it. Anyway, it was a great story, I got drawn into it, began to care for the characters, to think about a lot of things while reading.
This is something friends brought me when they came for lunch the other day. My table isn't red at all, but I wanted colors!
This is a final, colored version of the rabbit in a basket I talked about on another post. I'm not too happy about it, but it'll keep, for now. (and I realised I forgot to darken the shadow near the sock on the left... well, that can be arranged).
And finally, this is a small part of a much bigger drawing, from the story I'm currently illustrating, one drawing at a time. I'm really happy with how it came out. I'm really surprised (and overjoyed) that I was able to conceive the whole scene and draw it. I didn't think I would be able to do it.
So I'm beginning to feel like I can make this storybook. Only thing is how long it's going to take - and I've already have an idea for another one!
Well, at least I don't have to worry about ever getting bored...
