Here are a couple more illustrations from The Wish...
I've actually finished inking all of the pages (YAY!!!) but have now realized that I need a better cover illustration (BOO!!!)
More pages from The Wish...
I'm just finishing up the inking on the last of the pages now. Then I'll be pasting them up with the words. If I'm happy with how that turns out, I'll get a few copies printed and bound as a sort of "black & white preview version".
The goal after that is to hand colour all of the inked drawings and have that printed and bound in time to give each of our moms (and some friends with young kids) one for Christmas.
I know the calendar says that summer ended on Sept 22 but, for me, summer has set when the mast comes down.
There seems to me something inherently sad (or at least undignified) about a sailboat afloat with no mast and rigging. It just ain’t right.
It’s been a great summer but now it’s time to squirrel away as much wood as I can.
There is a general rule of wood gathering: When you think you have enough, go get five times more.
