- Create a cover (probably a title would be important as well)
- Write/create an introduction page
- Put it all together as a PDF
I thought I'd pop in and give you a progress report on my bug coloring book. I feel like I have enough bugs drawn now - 12 - and so I'm working on editing my drawings. I've scanned them and am going through the pain-staking process of cleaning them up. For instance, right now I'm in the middle of combing through my dragonfly drawing. See this leaf....
And now it's a bit less messy (still working on it).
I'm not going for perfection. Like I mentioned in my last post, I kind of like the human-element of a little bit of imperfection in my art. My goal is just less messy. Even so, I can see myself dragging my feet on this step and taking forever just because the next steps are more intimidating...
Those are the next few steps, after I finish the editing bit. Then I am self-publishing this book through CreateSpace (not sure if I've mentioned that yet).
Someone asked me the other day which bug was my favorite. I was stumped in the moment, but I think now it's either the moth or the spider
A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
