Well, here is the completed version of an illustration I did of Uncle Griffinskitch’s library for Kendra Kandlestar IV. I had hoped to complete this while I was in Korea, during my Time Travel Camp.
My students eagerly watched me as I hatched away at this for two or three days. They thought this quite a treat, but the real treat came when they go to witness one of my quintessential moments of frustration when I became so disenchanted with my own illustration that I declared it ruined. As soon as my students realized that I was abandoning the drawing they began bartering for who would get to keep the piece—alas, I kept it for myself to help me with the “redo.”
And redo it, I did. Here it is below, completed to my satisfaction (at least, I think).
