Maybe you've noticed a rather lengthy hiatus in terms of the posts here (sorry). Well, there's an explanation for that: In thinking about this site and what I want it to do, I came to the realization that it was getting to be a bit too much "inside baseball".
So I've decided to tone down the process part of this (there will still be some of it) and instead post a couple of panels from every page of the book. I'm going to start with page one and post until we're caught up with where I am currently (I'm working on page 27 right now).
To make up for the long silence, here's page one in its entirety. I'm not going to make a habit of posting full pages (there has to be SOME surprise once the book is finally released), but this time I'll make an exception:
In this first page we see how India's spending her Sunday: She's trying to draw but it's going...badly. And the more she tries, the more frustrated she gets.
A lot of this book comes from personal experience. I mean...not the experience of being a little girl (except when it comes to spiders). But I know exactly what it's like to be stuck. And sometimes figuring a way out of it isn't exactly straightforward.
