Back home and back to work

Well, in the last month I’ve stood at the top of Whistler Mountain, swam in the lakes of the Okanagan Valley, hiked up the Great Wall of China, and hustled my way through the markets of Korea. All wonderful—but it’s pretty hard to draw and write when one is traipsing across the world.

Now that I’m back home, entrenched in my studio, I can get back into my routine, which pretty much looks like this:

  • Feed cat.
  • Write.
  • Pet cat.
  • Check email.
  • Watch cat sleep.
  • Paint.
  • Watch cat stretch.
  • Write more.
  • Watch cat wander outside.
  • Paint more.
  • Watch cat sleep again.

Yes, it’s fair to say my cat distracts me—but in my defense, he does sleep right next to my computer. See, he long ago claimed part of my drawing station as his little kingdom. He rules it well.

In the meantime, here are some sketches and some final inked versions of drawings for work on the next Kendra book. These are all from the chapter dealing with that wondrous Een festival called Jamboreen.
