Sometimes my picture book dummy illustrations
spin off into possible portfolio pics.
Maybe because tend to get wrapped up in the characters I'm writing about.
It's like I "know" them, and their hopes, fears, aspirations.
(No, I don't hear voices.) :)
Drawing/painting my own tales just comes easier.
(Like this little gal, she's afraid of...well, more about that later.)
I've tried my hand at illustrating some of the classics;
(Pinocchio, Alice, etc. )
Those are amazing stories,
and it was fun, but...
for me, the results just weren't the same:/
