New Book

The character intro pages from the new book I am doing for Going to School. The style requires me to use photographs and paint over them. I carefully choose the area to be covered with soft tones to highlight the important aspects of the images. Using brush to draw is a meditative process. It brings a great relief from the guarded use of my other drawing techniques. Lots more to do in the coming days. The negatives from the Jaipur trip have gone for a wash. So, an update will follow soon.
