Back to the Drawing Board

The Popup shop has well and truly been and gone – it was a worthwhile exercise, but it’s now time to get down to some projects I’ve been keeping too long on the back burner. I have to wrest myself away from printmaking for a while as there are several illustration jobs that need attending to. First there was Vivien Wade’s poetry book, which will be featured in the Illustration Gallery shortly. But right now I have the most urgent job I’ve ever been given: a colour-in ABC for my son and daughter-in-law’s baby shower – due now!! I’ve got half the drawings done, so I hope that’s enough – if they have 26 guests hopefully they can get two of them colouring each drawing! I’ll get the second half done well before the baby’s due (in May!)

Here are a few samples:

A is for Adventuring

E is for Exploring

I is for Ice Hockey

L is for Lifesaving

The theme is sports and outdooors stuff with a Canadian flavour – guess where my son lives.  I never felt like doing a colouring in book before, but this is such fun I might do some other themes.  Suggestions are welcome!

    Thanks Belinda! I can’t understand why I’ve spent so little time on this kind of thing for the last twenty years – I get too easily distracted! It takes a son who won’t take no for an answer to make me buckle down to work! (:
