Technically, I'd started it all before the book tour - but that was bonkers crazy schedulewise, so this all really only got a head of steam around Thanksgiving.

That's a lot of little lines.

I hope your eyes and back are happy to have a rest at all this! It's all quite handsome, of course.

It's fantastic to see them all lined up on the wall....even as you rub the poor kinks out of your fingers, hand and shoulder...
...so cool to get to see them all in place, rememnering the last line-up and how THEY would play out...now we get to imagine all over again! :-)

...how do you decide which bit from any given section of a book becomes an illustration? This has always been a mystery to me. ((curious))

When I'm outlining the book, I do the thumbnail sketches. and decide on the key moments beforehand. Then I make sure those scenes are written into the book. (He said modestly, revealing the secrets of Creation Itself).
