Baby Sketches, and what's new

I started rough character design for a novelty board book manuscript I wrote earlier this year. Yes, I know novelty board books are a very hard sell. But I really can't control the ideas that come into my head now, can I?

I think I need to paint up that little Vitruvian baby, no? Or at least make him sepia toned like his grown up counterpart.

I've been juggling the writing on different projects in between painting up a big spread for my first picture book dummy. I had the grand realization that I can't collage at that scale the way I'd like. I think I'll be scanning all the painted bits and assembling it all digitally. I'll be sure to share the process once I make my way through it all!
