I've been cleaning up my studio this week in the burst of "grown-up-edness" that always follows me doing my taxes. Usually, I have about a week's window in which I attempt to tidy up, get grades in, and otherwise get my life in order before my previous slovenly ways take hold again. So, I found these early- and I mean, some of the EARLIEST- sketches I did for ROLLER GIRL! Behold!
Most of my early sketches look like this- a combination of drawings and random words and phrases.
Here's an early watercolor sketch:
And some of the drawings haven't changed much from sketch to finished book!
