This is the first year I've done a book for The Sketchbook Project. Their mobile library came to Steamboat last summer and inspired me to give it a try. I wanted to pick a low-pressure theme. And I wanted to do something with my daughter, Tessa. So we did a collaboration.
She drew on each page with a pen. Then I tried to see an image in her scribble. She is still only 1 1/2, so they really are scribbles. This was a good workout for my brain! I turned her drawings into something using pencil. Once all of the pages were drawn, I went through and added a little color with watercolor.
Doing this book was really fun for me and a good outlet for some random silliness. I definitely want to do more collaborations with Tessa. And I think I may do the Sketchbook Project again also!
