Counting down...

I am about two hours away! from completely! finishing all 17 paintings for this book!

My neck hurts. My back hurts. I smell funny. I need a haircut.

Edit to original post: I re-illustrated the cover image. There's something about Enkelin's hair in my original illustration that is completely wrong. The hard lines in her hair, I think. I need to study and practice painting Caucasian hair, clouds, and dead people.

You need to eat something totally yummy and get a good massage! Sometimes, I just stare at the wall when I'm pooped out at the end of some long creative thing. Yup, just stare at the wall or water or trees if I can get those....hope you get to do something all your own soon, too.

I was just thinking it's odd that the cover image is up on the website with the "pre-sale" of the book, even though you aren't finished with all the illos, when I read that you re-did the cover. Ha!

Caucasian hair, clouds, and dead people. Now that would be interesting if they were all in one painting! :)

It's Friday! Sounds like a good night to go out and celebrate.

Congrats!!

Gail: Yes, me too. I didn't say anything, but I thought this book was a spring 2008 release. But fall? It'll be magic if that happens.
