I have good news! I’m excited to announce that I’ll be working with Shen’s Books on an upcoming picture book. I don’t want to spoil the surprise by telling you too much about the story, but I will say that it’s set in Korea in the 1700’s and is quite a sweet tale. I figured it was logical to start by doing tons of research and collecting as many resources and images as I can find, so for the past few weeks I’ve been busy digging through books and journals and scouring the internet for images of antique Korean tools, etc. Good stuff.
Today I stepped back from the books for a minute and realized I haven’t painted anything in quite a while… and definitely haven’t put any new images on my little old blog, so here’s a quick sketch (from reference) from today to try to get into the mood of things.
