I went on a trip to New Orleans recently, and I brought back a gator head. I was feeling pretty uninspired today, so I set the head up on my Wacom tablet and did a little study in blue pencil.
I'm pretty well behind in the 52 stories project, but I'm still trucking. I was playing with the idea of doing some traditional work for the story illustration, and by the end of the gator head study, I decided to give it a try. I'm going to go watercolor on the next one. We'll see how it goes. I'm determined to get all 52 done, no matter how long it takes!
