For today’s update I really wanted to point you in the quick direction of a small video I just uploaded to Instagram. It’s a quick flip through of the sketchbook I am developing this project in. While I haven’t made a lot of public updates yet I have covered quite a few pages in the sketchbook. This is an essential part of the creation process.
It is my first time writing and illustrating my own story and I want to get it right so I am doing a lot of research. I’ve working my way through a stack of books while taking notes and working out the story concepts.
Some of the books are on technical subjects of writing while others are stories. I just finished the old classic The Wind on the Willows, while I was familiar with the story from childhood I cannot remember that I have ever actually read it. It is so beautifully written! If you have never read it I highly recommend that you do.
That is all for now, thank you for reading and I hope you have a great week!
This is my process sketchbook for the #montaguemouse project. While I haven’t released that many public updates yet there is a lot of research and discovery going on behind the scenes as you can see! ? #workinprogress #storytelling #anadventure #artistsoninstagram #instaartist #sketchbook #sketches #illustration #kidlitart #writing #instaart #artlife
