Here's another piece I did for Gemma's Flickr group What I wore today, in between working on the picture book spreads.
I've finished one spread - just 27 to go, hurrah!
I will post the spreads from the book soon.
For my picture book work, I realised I spend a LOT of time trying to decide what the characters will wear. Hours, sometimes days disappear just trying out different outfits for all the children. I can be really indecisive sometimes...
In real life, I spend much less time deciding what I will wear as I am mostly at home. I am a bit of a slob. So yesterday was pretty exciting as I wore 3 different outfits in 1 day! I left the flat for the first time in 5 days to go to my part-time job. Yes, I still have a crappy part-time job. The pay is poo, it's not particularly demanding and there are lots of silly rules that annoy and frustrate me, but it gets me out the house, I get to see lots of lovely people and films for free :) I can't be a hermit all the time. It also makes me appreciate the freedom I have in being a self employed illustrator. No uniforms, no rules, no one to answer to and cups of tea, coffee and treats whenever I like :)))
