I could be talking about my daughter, who really can motor in crawl mode these days. I can barely keep up with her. But I could also be talking about me! I feel very productive! I've been sketching like crazy these past few weeks. I'm working on a few exciting projects that I can't wait to share, so in the meantime, here's a fun little side track, or maybe it's another book in the making! I did this little painting in Rebelle while Coral was taking a glorious 2 hour long nap. Work-at-home Mamas, you know what that feels like!
I had a pile of lined notebook papers on my desk, and I went through them today and stumbled across some very rough sketches about animals that would live in an ocean farm. Among them were sea horses, sea bunnies (a real thing), and sea cows. This little duo was up in a corner. I immediately felt the urge to bring them to life! Now that I'm a full time freelancer, I can do that! Just sit down at my desk and draw something because I want to. What a novel idea!
I'm really glad I saved this batch of papers! I've always loved the ocean and I'm fascinated by all the creatures that live there. Who knows, perhaps I'll create a children's book about my little Sea Farm someday! Editors, have your people call my people! No, wait, just call me! I'd love to talk with you and tell you all about the fascinating lives that Daddy Seahorses live!
