I wrote another new children's book, which is, as yet, untitled. First draft. I decided to work on illos for it, or studies or drafts for them in the moleskine exchange sketchbooks. I am using the large watercolor sketchbooks for another children's book, A Good Day to Stay Home. So I am using the yellow coated paper A3s for this new book. To see the full illo and read about it, go to my image blog, Imagik.
It has a story. Onondaga Lake, in Syracuse, NY, where I used to live, is one of the most polluted lakes in the country if not the world. I was there one day walking and taking pictures when a migrant worker drove up in his pick-up truck, got out, and washed up in the toxic waters of the lake. A storm was approaching--I tried to tell him that the water wasn't clean, but he didn't understand me. I was thinking the storm was a figurative one as well as a literal one.
I had some problems with this, and may try it again sometime.
