I’ve been busy in the studio for many months, although my head was in the clouds as I worked on the illustrations for my new book Picture the Sky. The idea for the book began when I was working on the Picture a Tree because the more I looked at trees, the more I noticed the sky. The more I looked at the sky, the more I noticed about how it looks, as well as the feelings it can inspire and how it is reflected in art. I also noticed how often the sky is pictured in children’s artwork. The biggest challenge has been trying to fit all the ideas and pictures into the book!
Now all the artwork is finished, it has been photographed and is off to the printers. Picture the Sky will be published this September – I can’t wait to see it!
