It's official.

It's officially done. 14 double page spreads, 6 single pages and one spot illustration for my latest children's book. Cover sketch 10c ended up winning (see earlier post), so it was approved on Tuesday, I finished everything on Thursday, couriered it all to Sydney on Friday, and had the biggest sleep-in ever on Saturday. :-)

I have to say I am proud of what I accomplished, and I can't wait to see it in book form!! I will miss the project in my life - Not so much the book itself but the time I dedicated to painting every day and how that has affected my discipline. I really learned a lot illustrating this book, which I will share with you over the coming weeks.

I am looking forward to getting back to a bit of normal life though -- some blogging, some Illustration Fridays, but most of all seeing my husband and friends! I have been locked inside my studio for the last month, and as much as I have loved every second of it, I am keen to rediscover my social life (and the house needs a good clean too!)
