Makin' Art, subtitled: Know My Plight

People! Tarry not! The deadline to get yourself one of my supersweet FREE watercolors of Lydia riding her beloved horse, from my new book HELLO! HELLO! is fast approaching. I need you to get your books bought and receipts sent in to me by this Saturday, December 1st to make the cut. I say tarry not!

In case you were wondering, this is just a day in the life here. This is what I go through to make one of these watercolors. It's hard out there, folks. See my blog post right here for details on how to secure one of these (maybe/maybe not tear-stained) for your own self!

Hi Matt,

Perhaps this was staged for comic effect, but I, for one, was very pleased to find a fellow picture book illustrator practicing the textbook paint-on-a-lapboard-and-hunch-yourself-over-with-horrendous-posture-for-hours-on-end painting technique. I mean, who needs tables and desks right?

Alas, I actually do find myself doing this ALL OF THE TIME. Especially under deadline. When I am sitting for as long as possible :)

Keep up the great work!
