Today was a back-to-the-day-job day. I got off work late, but I had time to start repairing an image that has the wrong proportions for my square print book. I didn’t account for the bleed. As a result, legs are cut off, the sun will be cut in half; the chimney gets whacked, and more.
I created this image in Procreate and I’m having a hell of a time fixing it. My impatience is affecting my attitude. I was hoping that I’d have time today to do another gouache painting, but that didn’t work out. However, it’s important to me that I do something on my children’s picture book project every day, no matter what other unforeseeable detours I run into. The way I see it, an inch a day is an admirable accomplishment.
