My Favorite Things – Making Progress at the Drafting Table

I’ve had limited time these past weeks for regular work on my illustrations.  Therefore, when I do get a chunk of time – like I did yesterday – I feel like an addict making up for lost time.  Top of my list recently has been a new “head-shot” for Josephine.  I struggled this week with various looks and angles…only to find that, in the end, the problem was  too many angles!  In each of the versions I created, Josephine looked stiff, over-worked, and (gasp!) old.  Yesterday as I scratched my brain in frustration and pondered the next step, something clicked…or loosened up…or, whatever.

And a pondering, but still sassy, Josephine emerged.
