as i shut the book to one of the kids' stories tonight, i noticed a really cool crown on the back cover. the pointy parts reminded me of chevrons, and i knew i wanted to incorporate a crown into today's illustration.
i haven't yet erased the pencil marks and i kind of like them. i'm debating adding a little color. i'm kind of liking the black and whiteness of it all. we'll see.
on a different note, my favorite show on tv, so you think you can dance started again. i cried on the second dance. (for those of you just meeting me, i'm a dancer..... well, in my head, anyway. in my head i do amazing, powerful contemporary routines. in real life...not so much. but watching dancers brings me to tears. all the time. someday i want to take a lesson with wade robson. and i want to finally go to the so you think you can dance concert.)
