one more time, with feeling

Time flies- meant to update this before a month had gone by, and worke up the other day and realized I never had! So it's another big pile of sketches, and there are more, this is just the illustration backlog.

I've been working on the idea of telling a story or a feeling in a single drawing (which I guess is the point of illustration), but also trying to leave the mystery, like a good book cover illustration. So some of these are real life drawings, some of these are just scribbles, ideas, characters

(this is actually from a book- diana wynne jones' "charmed life")

and of course, it wouldn't be my blog if there wasn't a self portrait for this month
