Here in Chicagoland, Spring is doing it's best to stay unsprung. Not cool. Spring is my favorite time of year. The promise of warmer temps, heading into summer. Not too hot, but just getting there. So fresh. So clean. Energy burst out of the wintery slump. Temps have been all over the place in the last couple of weeks. Getting a taste of 60's here and there, but then it drops to 30's. Not cool. Supposedly it'll hit 80 this weekend. Let's see.
Still in throes of these two mid-grade novel illustration gigs. They've been kinda neck and neck with due dates. One's a little ahead of the other. The one that's more ahead, I'd like to share some of what's happening. I have, more or less, confirmed character sketches, and this page is what I'm using as my guide for art development.

And I just delivered a full set of 50 sketches to the pub (Abrams) yesterday. Waiting for some notes to come back. Here are a couple, from those, that I like. I hope these make the final cut.
In other news, Romy is also ready for spring. She wants to go outside! We're going crazy in here.
