Big Day at the Art Factory — three more pictures colored and ready for inDesign

Yesterday, and today, I spent hours painting Buddy Butterfly’s many-segmented wings, all the while reminding myself that I should learn to create interesting characters that are easy to draw and paint, especially if I’m going to featuring the character on 20 to 30 pages. Buddy is my favorite character, but he’s a pain to draw and paint. All, the same, I love the guy.

Last night I awoke in the middle of the night with the fear that what I’m doing will be a flop. It took me a while to calm down. I had to remind myself that I’m doing this because I like what I’m doing. So, I’m moving ahead at full speed. In fact, I have five more books planned for Jimmy Jay and Buddy Butterfly.
