The second project is more interesting. It’s illustrations for a book about children’s Quaker meeting for business. At first I was thinking of using block printing, but I couldn’t make that idea work, so now I’m working with a collage/mixed media/digital approach inspired in part by Ezra Jack Keats.
And the final thing that’s new in the studio? My keyboard’s space bar isn’t working. Like trying to do math without the zero, writing gets much more frustrating without spaces!
