In the studio
If it's true, as I read on a blog somewhere recently, that there is a correlation between a messy work area and creativity, then judging from these photos, I'm super creative.
Here I am in my studio, consumed with sketching FARMER, code name for I Am My Grandpa's Enkelin. No need to hide the real title any longer.
Some not so obvious things pictured:
--On the floor, several large Norman Rockwell books, although I think Kadir is the new Norman Rockwell, in terms of style.
--Martha Ann's Quilt for Queen Victoria, sent to me by the author. I'll blog about that later this week.
--Several other illustrator's books whose artwork inspires me: Terry Widener, Shane Evans, Mark Buehner.
--28 other books, checked out from the library, on the topics of: the Amish community, vegetable gardening, farming, old-time farming equipment.
