Writing and illustrating books is a little like sending little seeds out into the world to blow in the wind and find their way. This week I have been up to my knees in paper and tape- making book dummies for submission into the great wide world of publishing... 5 x-acto blades and 6 rolls of double stick tape later I left this pile on the floor of my studio (yes I had fun playing with it, and yes there is more than one book here):
and this neat pile on my desk, ready for fedex:
Fingers crossed for my little seeds. And my apologies to all the trees that were destroyed in the process.
