This is my first post to any blog ever, so bear with me, please.
Here are two collages I made from pieces of photos that I put together. I plan to use them as the sketches for two of the B & W marker illustrations I'm doing for the 2nd Shaker kid's book.
I'm especially interested in your suggestions for the first one, with the boy looking at his sketchbook while he's remembering the last sight he had of his mother. That's the part that's up above his head. It's supposed to look like a "vision" he's having of that night when his mother left the cabin to go with the man on horseback. But I think it might just look like somebody painted a mural on the back wall of the room he's in, and left the edges jaggedy. Any suggestions, please? Thanks! See you tomorrow, at lunch, I hope.
