Exciting news! My two new board books will be shipping (hopefully) by the end of next week in time for the 4th of July weekend- which is especially good news because I have my first signings for the books at Where the Sidewalk Ends in Chatham, MA (Cape Cod) on July 4th from 1-3. Hope you can make it!
In the meantime, I will continue to chronicle the development of these books (scroll down a bit if you'd like to start at the beginning)....
Now that I was reasonably encouraged by the direction the baby duck was taking, I began to work on his older buddy, a duck I was already well acquainted with from my "Journey Around Boston from A to Z" book. You can see, however, from the scruffily beginning above that my first try (as usual) was not as successful as I wanted. I was trying to brighten him up, make him more in style with the baby duck. From my first try, it looks like I tried to accomplish this by sending him through the washing machine! I was almost embarrassed to post that one! After a few tries though, I began to get the hang of it and then worked on how the two of them would look together. With a skip in their step, I was pleased that I was moving in the right direction. Persistence pays! Keep at it!
A Block Party! The sound of those words make me smile! Too rainy though, check out this Blog Party instead!
